2018 Workshop on “ISO 20400 – Sustainable Procurement” with Helen Carter a Alex Giles from Action Sustainability

A workshop on ISO 20400 – Sustainable Purchasing, held in Prague on 15 March 2018, was prepared in collaboration with the British Action Sustainability. The workshop showed the participants from among contracting authorities a comprehensive approach to the implementation of sustainable procurement. This approach can be used in both the public and private sectors, and is about understanding the basics of the sustainable purchasing – procurement process, embedding sustainability into the policy and strategy for purchasing processes in an organisation, as well as managing such processes, sharing responsibility, identifying stakeholders and communicating with them, setting priorities, but also measuring and evaluating the results.

The trainers were Action Sustainability experts Helen Carter and Alex Giles.
