Buy Sustainably, Buy Smart
The BuySmart Network (formerly the Sustainability Purchasing Network) is a key source of information and education on sustainable purchasing. Administered by the non-profit Fraser Basin Council, BuySmart benefits from the participation of leaders in business, public bodies and non-profit organizations who are willing to share procurement strategies and learn from each other.
