Developed by CIPS to help you break through barriers to sustainable purchasing

The CIPS Sustainability is a collaborations between the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply, the University of West England (UWE) and PRGX. With research indicating that there were limited cross-industry standards to assess all three pillars of sustainability for both suppliers and buyers, the CIPS Sustainability Index was developed by the team to create a consistent sustainability measurement to support purchasing and, in doing so, create significant time and cost efficiencies.
