We convene a COMMUNITY of leaders.

The Council brings together visionary professionals from institutions, suppliers, government, standards bodies and NGOs to simplify, optimize and standardize the practice of sustainable procurement. Together, we can leverage the trillions of dollars spent by organizations to drive social, environmental, and economic sustainability.

We offer GUIDANCE for implementation.

The Council’s membership collaborate with each other and with other partners to supply purchasers with the best available hot spot and product-specific guidance in a manner that prioritizes high-impact areas of spending and that supports procurement processes commonly found in the public and private sector.

We propose a LEADERSHIP recognition program.

Just as the USGBC’s LEED program provides a shared platform for guiding, measuring, and recognizing leadership in green building, the Council proposes a shared platform for guiding, measuring, and recognizing leadership in sustainable procurement.
