The Sustainable Procurement Roadmap (PDF, 126KB) will help you to progressively implement sustainable procurement principles.
The Roadmap outlines five 'destination' points: foundation, embed, practice, enhance, and lead. As you progress through each destination, the roadmap reflects the increased level of sustainable procurement implementation and capability achieved.
You should use the Sustainable Procurement Roadmap (PDF, 126KB) to help you develop a more detailed sustainable procurement implementation plan for your agency. View the draft agency implementation plan (PDF, 201KB) for an example.
Sustainable procurement, like most policy and behavioural changes, will be most easily adoped in an organisation which offers top-level support.
Key points to stress are:
- sustainable procurement does not require anyone to buy a product or service that fails to meet performance expectations or that costs more
- managers are not being asked to place their team's budget or performance at risk by selecting sustainably preferable products
- it may be possible to make savings in the budget or other resources by using sustainably preferable products
- sustainable procurement offers and opportunity for manager to demonstrate procurement leadership.
