This issue's SM100 (our survey of 100 purchasers) found that 66 per cent do not think sustainable procurement is less of a priority in tough economic times. 

Sustainability advisor Blake Lee-Harwood said unless the economy hits "ground zero", sustainable procurement will continue to be high on the agenda: "Companies which are good at sustainable procurement are run better, are more commercially successful and will survive a downturn. Ultimately, sustainable procurement is good procurement." 

What do you think? 

Is sustainability still a key consideration for your organisation?
