Sustainable Procurement Leaders Group

New Zealand businesses can reduce their environmental impact through changes in procurement – what they buy, who from and how.      

That’s why SBN has created the Sustainable Procurement Leaders Group. It’s for significant procurers in New Zealand keen to work together and lead on this issue. 

Businesses know they have huge influence. They can set high standards for things like climate, waste and water in their procurement policies. But it can be tough to find the right suppliers and know what to ask them. It’s also challenging to know how to monitor changes, measure success and get leadership buy-in. Making this the norm means changing the system for everybody. 

The Sustainable Procurement Leaders Group will meet quarterly. It will define best practice for environmentally sustainable procurement. It will co-design practical ways to implement it. 

Being part of this Group will help you:

  • understand what best practice looks like for your business
  • identify the tools, resources, and solutions required to transition to best practice
  • achieve leadership buy-in and lead effective change with case studies, expert advice, and knowledge-sharing
  • co-create innovative New Zealand procurement solutions and pathways with other leaders

The first Group meeting will take place in September 2020. Participants can access the meeting nationwide (via Zoom), but places are limited. Each quarterly session will build on the previous ones, so join now for all four.

SBN is currently inviting the first wave of participants for this Group. You do not have to be an existing SBN Investor or Major Investor to take part.

The cost to participate in the Group is $5,500 a year.

Discounts are available for SBN Members and Investors.
