Sustainable and responsible procurementsProcurements are an important aspect of corporate responsibility. Their own procurements allow companies to make a substantial contribution to resource-smart solutions and technology becoming more widespread.
The implementation of responsible procurements requires the support of the management and the necessary resources. The procurement of energy efficient and resource-smart solutions also requires knowledge, time and an attention to detail from the people who prepare invitations to tender and make procurement decisions.
Choose wiselyWhat kinds of procurements are in line with your company’s values and corporate responsibility?
Minimum requirements may include energy efficiency, low emissions, an ecolabel or recyclability. It would be a good idea to set the minimum requirements which the product or service to be procured must meet in the invitation to tender.
