This research paper provides valuable insight into sustainable procurement as a strategic public policy mechanism for Canadian policymakers and business leaders. We are advocating for a comprehensive approach to advance sustainable procurement policies that lead to positive social and environmental outcomes.
This report is an important foundation for future conversations about this timely topic – a topic that will inform Canada’s procurement policies.
