About this event

Purchase with Impact: The what, why and how of social procurement

Every purchase has an economic, environmental and social impact, whether intended or not. Social procurement is about capturing those impacts and seeking to make intentional positive contributions to both the local economy and the overall vibrancy of the community.

In this webinar, Buy Social Canada will introduce the what, why and how of social procurement to help you increase the reach and impact of your existing purchasing. As a business, institutional or government purchaser, you can harness the power of your purchasing to create impact. Purchasing is more than an economic transaction, it’s an opportunity to transform communities.
