A useful learning and networking opportunity for anyone interested in sustainable procurement: the Sustainable Office Supplies free webinar on August 18.
Join us for this free SPLC webinar focused on taking a standardized approach to sustainable office supply procurement.
Sustainable purchasers have worked on addressing the category of office supplies for years. In response, the supplier community has worked with both purchasers and office product manufacturers and has made great strides in improving what they can provide to purchasers via their catalogs and their reporting. Yet, there has never been a central standard for sustainable office supply purchasing – and purchasers and suppliers agree that establishing a common approach to this category would simplify the effort for everyone and drive market transformation. That’s why the SPLC leveraged our tested Action Team approach to develop standardized office supply specifications.
During this webinar, learn more about the new standard sustainable office supply specifications available for your use and how you can commit to taking action on this category. Hear directly from Action Team members on how the specs were developed and why their organizations will be participating in the collective action.
