Sustainable procurement frameworks, green building rating systems, green purchasing policies… Government agencies and corporates are increasingly pushing sustainability to the top of their tendering process.

Proof of environmental commitment, transparency of claims and third party certification are increasingly required in order to successfully compete for contracts. Opportunities for product innovations could help you gain access to new and international markets, both now and in the future.

This seminar will give you the tools to prove your environmental credentials, and make these new conditions a competitive advantage for your business. Using material taken from North Shore City’s procurement policies, The Green Star NZ process, and the Rugby World Cup Sustainable Procurement Toolkit, our presenters will take you through the best way to promote your business case and take advantage of the opportunities this new way of thinking creates.
