GLRPPR Sector Resource: Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing
Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing
The Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) envisions a world where the production, distribution, use and disposal of goods and services enhance the long-term health and vitality of society, economies and the planet. SPLC supports and recognizes leadership in sustainable purchasing to accelerate the transition to an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future.
The Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council and its membership strive to define and accelerate environmental, social and economic (ESE) progress through sustainable purchasing. Organizational purchasing decisions send powerful economic signals up and down the entire supply chain, with ESE impacts throughout the lifecycle of purchased goods and services.
By adopting a consistent, practical definition of leadership in sustainable purchasing, organizations can collectively advance a positive future for society and the planet by using their purchasing power to promote marketplace innovation that delivers broad benefits to customers, suppliers, employees, investors, other stakeholders, and society at large. To this end, we define leadership in sustainable purchasing according to the following principles.
