Amazon Business Webinar: Socially Responsible Purchasing- The FCCC & Amazon Business

Date: May 9, 2023
Time: 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Location: Virtual

Based on the California Community College Board of Governors Climate Action and Sustainability Framework, districts and colleges should strive to increase procurement of sustainable products and services by 25% compared to benchmark levels by 2030, and by 50% compared to benchmark levels by 2035. Yet, many institutions have found it difficult to achieve their documented social responsibility goals, since identifying certified sustainable products has traditionally been a manual and time-consuming process. According to a Gartner poll, 55% of procurement leaders say they lack specific strategic purchasing requirements.

Join this webinar hosted by Amazon Business to learn how your District can continue to serve students through the implementation of socially responsible purchasing. During this 1-hour webinar, we will discuss strategies to bring sustainability and local California District buying to the forefront of your procurement program, share analytics to understand your current ESG footprint, and demo Amazon Business tools to help your District set specific targets against this baseline.
