Efficient procurement procedures require flexibility, transparency, and most crucial, the fulfilment of high qualitative environmental and social standards. It is often challenging to weigh up the higher costs versus the actual money that is saved through the responsible purchase in the long term. Procurement practitioners thus need to know how to optimally operationalise and integrate green and social considerations into their procurement operations as well as coping with the demands audits pose on them.

This practical seminar presents hands-on solutions to the daily challenges you encounter in handling your purchases. You gain deep insights into best practice examples and how to most effectively apply socially responsible criteria in your everyday and business also for more demanding and challenging purchases. Deepen your professional knowledge and learn how to avoid legal pitfalls. The seminar will focus on:

  • How to define the principles of sustainable procurement
  • How to implement social and environmental considerations into your procurements, while maintaining flexibility
  • Why should your institution adopt ISO 20400:2017?
