The Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) envisions a world where the production, distribution, use and disposal of goods and services enhance the long-term health and vitality of society, economies and the planet. SPLC supports and recognizes leadership in sustainable purchasing to accelerate the transition to an economically, socially and environmentally sustainable future. The Council brings together visionary professionals from institutions, suppliers, government, standards bodies and NGOs to simplify, optimize and standardize the practice of sustainable procurement. Together, SPLC leverages the trillions of dollars spent by organizations to drive social, environmental, and economic sustainability.

SPLC convenes a community of leaders.
The Council brings together visionary professionals from institutions,
suppliers, government, standards bodies and NGOs to simplify, optimize and
standardize the practice of sustainable procurement. Together, we can
leverage the trillions of dollars spent by organizations to drive social,
environmental, and economic sustainability.
SPLC offers guidance for implementation.
The Council’s membership collaborate with each other and with other
partners to supply purchasers with the best available hot spot and
product-specific guidance in a manner that prioritizes high-impact areas of
spending and that supports procurement processes commonly found in the public
and private sector.
The Council is building a leadership recognition program.
Just as the USGBC’s LEED program provides a shared platform for guiding,
measuring, and recognizing leadership in green building, the Council proposes
a shared platform for guiding, measuring, and recognizing leadership in
sustainable procurement.
