Sustainable procurement is the process of making purchasing decisions that meet an organisation’s needs for goods and services in a way that benefits not only the organisation but society as a whole, while minimising its impact on the environment.
Integrating sustainability into your procurement is achieved by ensuring that the working conditions of its suppliers’ employees are decent, the products or services purchased are sustainable, and where possible, that socioeconomic issues, such as inequality and poverty, are addressed.
If you are not sure where to start, or have strategies and policies in place but are unsure of their impact, Procurement Australia team is here for you in every step of the way.

We are already delivering sustainability solutions to empower Australian businesses and our wider communities. When you work with Procurement Australia, you’ll be helping to create a sustainable supply chain that champions a different kind of procurement future.
To help our members to reduce their waste footprint, we have partnered with the Advisory Systems for Process Innovation and Resource Exchange (ASPIRE) program. ASPIRE is an online matchmaking tool for material resource exchange. Using innovative software, ASPIRE brings different parties together to exchange value, helping everyone on the platform to reduce their disposal costs, operate more efficiently, and uncover potentially unexplored revenue streams.
ASPIRE responds to a growing need for Australian businesses and local councils to find reliable and inventive solutions to their ever-growing waste disposal issues and costs. The platform matches businesses according to what they are producing, what their waste or byproduct is, and how it could be used by another business. In doing so, ASPIRE helps businesses turn aspirational circular economy behaviours into practical realities.
As one of the largest aggregators in Australia, we’re proud of our ability to find the best solutions for our members, while staying true to our sustainability commitments. This commitment extends to our ability to find the best renewable energy solutions to ensure our members can meet their individual renewable energy requirements.
With active agreements in Victoria and New South Wales, our Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) go beyond delivering surface level ‘green’ energy solutions. Instead, our PPAs are transparent and flexible, allowing members to find energy solutions that work for them and cut through the barrage of information in an increasingly complex and volatile marketplace.
Our PPAs will provide participating members with secure renewable energy to suit their sustainability agendas and needs over a ten year period. We are proud of the clear, consistent and targeted structure of these PPAs and what they can deliver for our members.
The Strategic Sourcing team is currently finalising new PPA opportunities in NSW and WA. We encourage all our members to reach out for more information about upcoming opportunities to suit their energy requirements.
We are always looking for ways to help our members to achieve their individual sustainability goals, without increasing their other associated costs. We are proud of the partnerships we have formed that will provide sustainable supply chain and energy solutions for our members and suppliers.
