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.

Professional's Views

“Leadership for the 21st Century gave me the unparalleled opportunity to look deep within myself and work hard to unlock any barriers that existed to my own self-development. Understanding better why I make certain choices, why I hold certain values so dear, and how to stretch my mind to new limits has helped me become a better professional, colleague and person.”
