GLRPPR Sector Resource: Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v2.0

Title:
Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v2.0

Abstract:
The Guidance for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing Version 2.0 is intended to help organizations improve the environmental, social, and economic performance within their supply chains -- across the entirety of product and service life cycles -- by implementing a strategic sustainable purchasing program. This Guidance is based on the Council's Principles for Leadership in Sustainable Purchasing v1.0, which define what it means to be a responsible--principled--actor, as an organization and within the marketplace.

Organizations in a wide variety of sectors and regions can use this Guidance to understand the environmental, social, and economic life cycle impacts of their purchased goods and services, identify actions that best address these priorities, and benchmark progress toward goals. This Guidance is a voluntary program that will serve as the basis for a future rating system that rewards organizations that demonstrate leadership in sustainable purchasing.
