Creative Green Sustainable Procurement Workshop

January 30, 2019 @ 9:45 am - 1:30 pm

Neatly arranged selection of sliced green vegetables

Join us for this workshop and networking event to review how to green your supply chain and develop effective sustainable procurement plans. We’ll be hearing from practical case studies as well as learning about best practice from ethical suppliers.


Everything you buy leaves a trail of environmental impacts – from the materials used and their extraction, to the energy and water used in manufacture, transport, and shop fronts, through to the product’s use time and ultimately disposal. Regardless of the size of your organisation, your contracts with suppliers (big or small) have strong leverage in steering supply chains in a more sustainable direction. This makes your purchasing decisions a powerful tool to influence positive change.

Join us at Opera North in January for a half day morning workshop and lunch together exploring the do’s and don’ts of sustainable procurement, looking at energy, recycling, single-use plastics, printing, materials, procurement policies and other key areas.

Learn from what others are doing to tackle this issue, hearing from Good Energy and Seacourt who will be sharing their knowledge of good practice in their respective areas of expertise in energy and printing, plus other showcase speakers to be confirmed.
