Buyer-Supplier Collaboration: A Key Strategy for Sustainable Purchasing
If you’re ready to take your organization’s program to the next level, you’ll want to look closely at an emerging strategy in sustainable purchasing — buyer-supplier collaboration — as a way to deliver economic, social, ethical and environmental benefits along your supply chain.
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.
Would you like to help create a cleaner environment, a healthier community and better workplaces by weighing the social, economic and environmental impacts of the goods and services you buy? Welcome ― this website is for you.
