Sustainable procurement e-learning modules

Details

These free online modules offer procurement practitioners the tools and knowledge to assess their own procurement processes, with a view to adopting more sustainable practices.

The 6 modules offer:

  • Introduction to Sustainable Procurement
  • Construction and Major Refurbishment Projects
  • Furniture
  • Information, Communication and Technology (ICT)
  • Re-use and Remanufacturing
  • Textiles

The modules can be used as part of a work schedule and can be completed over time, rather than in one sitting.

They’ve been developed by the Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) as part of its work for the European Pathway to Zero Waste (EPOW), an EU LIFE+ project, funded by the European Commission and the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
