18-20 MAY: 2020 SUSTAINABLE PURCHASING LEADERSHIP COUNCIL VIRTUAL SUMMIT
Circularity is increasingly making its way into sustainable purchasing programmes. Purchasers might however find it difficult to concretely define and evaluate the circular attributes of products they purchase. Collaboration across the supply chain is therefore key for collecting circularity related data and information that is meaningful and can objectively inform purchasing decisions. As part of the Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council 2020 Online Summit, Institute VP Strategy & Development Christina Raab joins Positive ImpaKT founder Jeannot Shroeder and UL Director of Environmental Codes & Standards Josh Jacobs on Tuesday,19 May to give a practical orientation on best practice standards currently being used by purchasers in their day-to-day work and that can provide understanding and validation of circularity in credible ways. The panel will show examples of circular procurement in practice and how standardized ways of sharing and verifying circularity can support supplier relations and future-proof purchasing.
