Even just deciding which printer paper to buy can be an incredibly complicated decision for supply chain managers and procurement people wanting better environmental and sustainability performance.
So what does this mean for all of the things a well-intentioned business has to source - IT, food and beverages, cleaning products, services, travel and much more? How do you balance the price and function imperatives with going green? What new developments in labelling and assessment are on the horizon?

Find out how Green Capital is tackling the challenge through their Buying Better project. You'll get an early look inside reviews of the environmental bona fides of some very big industries - not only paper, but also meat and dairy, electronics, cleaning products and packaging. These events will provide important take-away lessons for everyone seeking to make environmentally preferable purchasing decisions.
