ISO 20400 standard

[http://www.iso.org/iso/home/news_index/news_archive/news.htm?refid=Ref1873 ] The ISO 20400 standard refers to sustainable procurement, a process whereby organizations meet their needs for goods, works and utilities in a way that achieves value for money in terms of generating benefits not only to the organization, but also to society and the economy, while minimizing damage to the environment.

The ISO 20400 standard (under preparation) will standardize guidelines and principles for all stakeholders working with internal and external purchasing processes – including contractors, suppliers, buyers, and local authorities – as part of an effort to demonstrate good practices for sustainable purchasing.

I was forced to build consensus in the face of resistance and I could say that the lessons learned helped me a lot. I am still quoting in some conversations this training.”
