Purchasing for a Better World

February 21 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm


How to Buy for your Business, Our Community, & the Planet.

Tuesday, February 21st, 1-2pm on Zoom

It’s all about your buying power! Consumers are told that they can promote a cleaner, healthier and more just world through their purchasing habits. Did you know that organizations can too? With their frequent or bulk buying needs, businesses can push for products and services that provide benefits beyond their obvious use.

For this Green Economy Peterborough learning webinar, we’ve brought together a panel of sustainable procurement experts who’ll share strategies and lived experience to help organizations up their buying game!

  • What is Sustainable Procurement? – Join Raeesa Farooqi from Buy Social Canada to learn about social and environmental procurement, the business and community benefits, and how the City of Peterborough is now implementing this impactful strategy.
  • Building the Better Way – Hear from Bill Lett of Lett Architects about his experience leading the Canadian Canoe Museum build and influencing change in the construction industry through sustainable procurement practices.
  • An Adventure in Purchasing – Learn from Scott Murison who’ll share his experience and recommendations on how Wild Rock Outfitters transformed their business values into buying practices.
