Procurement and Sustainable Business Practices
In 2007, Procurement was added to the UC’s Presidential Policy on Sustainable Practices, with guidelines on sustainable economy, energy and water use, recycled content and GreenSeal™ certified products, reduction of electronic hazardous waste, environmentally responsible packaging, effective recycling, supply chain environmental responsibility, and evaluating environmental claims. A panel of strategic sourcing and purchasing professionals will share how their campuses have interpreted and implemented the policy with successful results and how suppliers can play an important role.
