April 21, 2016

2016 Responsible Procurement BarometerEspace québécois de concertation sur les pratiques d’approvisionnement responsable (ECPAR), a non-profit organization based in Montreal, Quebec, promotes and supports corporate, government and institutional sustainable purchasing.

ECPAR is currently trying to engage companies and governmental institutions across Canada to take part in their 2016 Responsible Procurement Barometer survey. Completing the questionnaire (about 30 minutes) will provide each organization with a summary of its procurement performance and help understand how they measure up to the Canadian market.

In Quebec, 66% of procurement managers replied in a 2012 study that they included socio-environmental criteria in their procurement practices. What does the situation look like in the Canadian context today?

ECPAR’s study aims to measure the practices and record the progress of responsible procurement in Canada.

Deadline to participate is April 29th

Why participate?

Gain access to a personalized summary of the procurement performance of your organization enabling you to understand how you measure up to the market.
