7 Bold Strokes to Save Our World,” sustainable procurement (Bold Stroke #3) may be the most underused and powerful force that could accelerate us toward a resilient, future-fit socio-economic system. Several tools help organizations justify and implement a sustainable procurement system.

Sustainability ROI Workbook
This free, open-source, generic, CFO-friendly cost-benefit analysis tool can be used to justify a sustainable procurement system. Users treat the implementation of a sustainable procurement system as a project and assess the opportunities and risks associated with the initiative. 

Sustainable Procurement Toolkit
This free, open-source toolkit contains tools that help implement three critical aspects of a sustainable procurement system.

3-in-1 Sustainability Assessment Toolkit
Since sustainable procurement is about purchasing the most sustainable products from the most sustainable / future-fit suppliers, and since over 98% of companies / potential suppliers are SMEs, suppliers require an SME-friendly sustainability self-assessment tool. The free, open-source 3-in-1 Sustainability Assessment Toolkit enables any supplier to assess its performance on core sustainability issues. It can then use its composite score in its response to specifications in the RFP about its sustainability / ESG performance (see the RFP Specifications Template, above). For example, if the buyer assigns a 10% weighting to this criterion in its Bid Evaluation Tool (see above) and the supplier scores 67% in its self-assessment using the Toolkit, it would earn 6.7 points on the supplier sustainability / future-fitness specification.

The more that big buyers like governments and corporations integrate these kinds of tools into their procurement processes, the faster they will lead us to where we need to be: a resilient, just, inclusive, safe and future-fit socioeconomic system.
