Sustainability and Circular Economy Module 3 - Sustainable Procurement and Supply Chain

This programme consists of 7 modules and is designed to give users an introduction to corporate sustainability and the circular economy. The programme also provides an insight into how to incorporate sustainable practices and or circular economy principles to the workplace including in: energy usage, procurement and supply chains, social responsibility, business plans and stakeholder engagement. We also discuss the measuring and reporting of such sustainability performance considering for example data collection and reporting. This set of modules is geared towards UK civil service employees although the programme would suit anyone with an interest in corporate sustainability and the circular economy. The drive for introducing sustainable corporate practices in the workplace is only increasing; UK government departments and employees alike should be aware of such strategies and opportunities. Completing this module will give users the necessary knowledge to understand how their company aligns with these ideas.

This module gives users an introduction to sustainable procurement and supply chain and the importance of both in building a circular economy. We will begin by outlining sustainable procurement fundamentals: definition, principles and legal policy frameworks. We will then discuss integrating sustainability in supply chains, ensuring ethical and environmentally responsible sourcing. Case study examples are included to support the learning. This module can be completed standalone or as Module 3 of the Sustainabiliy & The Circular Economy in the Civil Service Programme.
