Reconciling best-value procurement, sustainability made easy
Reconciling best-value procurement and sustainability should not be a problem as the two represent a win-win, according to a recent report in Ranconteur.
"Procurement is all about value, so too is sustainability as long as that value is measured in more than just money," said Duncan Brock, group director at the Chartered Institute of Procurement & Supply.
"There many businesses are integrating sustainability into procurement. Heathrow Airport, for example, has embedded sustainability in supplier contracts for construction of the third runway, including key performance indicators and evaluation criteria," he said.
