Purchasing plays a pivotal role in leading the green revolution

The December issue of Supply & Demand Chain Executive is devoted to sustainability.  It features a story called “Green Purchasing, Sustainability, and Cost Savings”. Robert Menard, a Certified Green Purchasing Professional, authored this story to clearly demonstrate that the very underpinnings of sustainability are found in green purchasing. Sustainability is all about preservation and conservation. A synonym for those words is savings, the forte of the purchasing profession.

The story cites many instances of how cost savings come in tandem with true sustainability efforts.  Click on the image below, to access the original article.
