The IEMA Sustainable Procurement training course is assessed by the completion of set activities via the online learning hub, as part of the course delivery process.

As the world becomes more populous, urbanised and prosperous, demand for energy, raw materials, food and water is rising. Increased competition for these finite resources will raise prices, restrict availability and stress supply chains.

The expectation of organisations today is evolving beyond just maximising economic returns to stakeholders.  Organisations must understand, measure and manage the impacts of their decisions on society and the environment

Sustainability is increasingly the lens through which organisations are now judged, by their customers, employees, investors, governments and society.

The development and implementation of an effective Sustainable Procurement Strategy will help any organisation adapt to this inevitable future, rather than stay stuck in the past.

This course will help you in;

  • Aligning your value chain towards your sustainability goals;
  • Developing sustainable supply chains;
  • Transforming public procurement;
  • Developing green business value chains;
  • Positioning your organisation for the future, not the past.
