The issue of what “sustainability” really means to procurement still seems to be generating a variety of responses in the profession. Even the government, in its response to the report by the Sustainable Procurement Task Force, seemed to struggle in an attempt to balance environmental factors with political, economic, social and technological factors (ironically called PEST by some buyers).But what does sustainability mean to you? And can we apply the same criteria for every buyer? Is there ever a reason to avoid being “sustainable”?
