Sustainable Procurement with a Purpose

Proxima’s Sustainable Procurement service brings the expertise and know-how required to assess, kick start, or accelerate purposeful procurement and lasting positive change. Understanding that every organization is different, we bring together three distinct sustainable procurement services which can be deployed separately or sequentially.

  • Expert insight into market developments, other organizations, technology, and suppliers
  • Assessment frameworks to help benchmark, inform needs, and build a case for change
  • Supply market, sourcing, and change management expertise
