Responsible purchasing

Responsible purchasing practices are about integrating sustainable development and corporate social responsibility into the procurement processes of private and public organizations.

Our experts will help you integrate environmental, social and economic criteria into your purchasing processes for goods and services. The goal is to use your leverage as a value chain actor to reduce the environmental impact, increase the social benefits and improve the economic resilience of all organizations along the product or service life cycle.

There are two complementary approaches to responsible purchasing: product-based and supplier-based. Here are some examples of best practices that we can help you develop and implement:

  • Responsible purchasing policy and supplier code of conduct;
  • Using an LCA (Life Cycle Assessment) approach: Identification of environmental, social or economic issues for different categories of products, services or production sites, etc.
  • Calculation of the total costs of purchase, use and dematerialization (end of life);
  • Integration of sustainability criteria in calls for bids;
  • Preferential margin adoption;
  • Certifications (social or environmental);
  • Supplier evaluation process;
  • Support and training.
