MAKING THE CASE FOR SUSTAINABLE ‘GREEN’ PROCUREMENT

 

If there is anything history teaches us, it’s that events tend to repeat unless fundamental change occurs. The energy crisis of the 1970’s seems to be manifesting again in the 2000’s. On a global basis, a prevailing consumerist behavior encourages high demands and magnifies an already strong appetite for raw materials.

Sustainable ‘green’ procurement, as we see it, should take a holistic approach, one that encompasses organization, people, process, and technology. Sustainable ‘green’ procurement is not a recent fad. Companies realized a long time ago that efficiency in energy usage, waste generation, and water consumption, along with using recycled materials, resulted in reducing costs. Sustainable procurement is based on the belief that companies can simultaneously benefit from all three elements
