Sustainable Procurement Webinar

Sustainable Procurement Webinar


Our organisations are working in an increasingly complex environment: public perception, government funding, performance-based contracting and competing with private sector implementing partners, regulatory pressures including the Modern Slavery in the Supply Chain Reporting Act, global sustainability risks and subjects.

What has this got to do with procurement? What does procurement, let alone sustainable or ethical procurement, even really mean? And mostly – why should I care?

Join the webinar to hear from Tanya Harris, Global Manager, Procurement of The Fred Hollows Foundation. Tanya will share practical ideas on ways any size NFP/NGO can assess and target their own organisational spend to save lives sustainably.

Why join the webinar?

  • Under-resourced and time poor? Your choices really do matter: understand the role of sustainable procurement in protecting and promoting human rights and the environment.
  • Leveraging practical guidance like the sustainable procurement ISO20400 on how to implement the big concepts as well as tangibly deliver value for money and prove it!
  • Modern Slavery in the Supply Chain: how do you assess what is a material risk to YOUR organisation? Procurement methodologies in practice; and collaboration and our own internal outcomes to support advocacy.
