Procura Consulting is delighted to announce our partnership with CERN

On Earth Day 2022, Procura Consulting is delighted to announce our partnership with CERN in our most recent Sustainable Procurement project. We are examining the most optimal solutions to limit CO2 emissions from CERN’s complex supply chain and supporting implementation with a category-by-category action plan and a new Environmentally Responsible Procurement policy.

CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, is an intergovernmental organization with over 20 Member States and one of the world’s largest and most respected centres for scientific research.

CERN’s Director General, Fabiola Gianotti, expressed her vision of CERN becoming a role model as an environmentally aware research Laboratory. As part of this vision, Procurement and HSE at CERN have recently engaged with global procurement experts Procura Consulting. The project will define an environmentally responsible procurement policy and strategy. We will then implement an environmentally responsible, innovative and technology supported approach to sourcing aimed at reducing CERN Scope 3 emissions, whilst maintaining CERN procurement objectives. The approach will align to GRI standards, ISO 14000, ISO 26000, OHSAS 18001, SA 8000, ISO 20400 and is aligned with the CERN principles of exemplarity, environmental integrity, equity and governance, in collaboration with internal stakeholders and the CERN supply chain.

It is hugely encouraging that global organisations, such as CERN, are leading the way on their sustainability and environmental pledges and it’s a privilege for us to support them on this journey.

In celebration, Procura Consulting will be making a further donation to our membership at Ecologi,  the environmental organisation supporting climate change and ecological restoration. We encourage others to do the same (or with similar credible organisations) and also to support organisations such as the Sustainable Procurement Pledge and Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council in encouraging more organisations, procurement professionals and suppliers to learn about how they can support sustainability.

Procura Consulting is supporting multiple global and regional clients on their sustainable procurement journey.
