Presenting our new tool: Sustainable procurement checklist 


More than 70% of the climate footprint of the health care sector stems from its supply chain and purchasing. Sustainable procurement practices provide an opportunity to significantly reduce these emissions and impacts. Join us for the launch of the Checklist, a new tool, exclusive for GGHH members, designed to support the health care sector to embed sustainability into procurement programs around the world.

This is the perfect tool to use with our Sustainable Procurement Guide, a comprehensive resource for health care organizations to build a best-in-class sustainable procurement program. 

GGHH will be hosting two sessions to accommodate a variety of time zones. Both sessions will be recorded and require registration prior to the event.

During both sessions, you will learn about the new checklist and its benefits and hear from GGHH members showcasing their experience developing and implementing successful sustainable procurement programs.

Session 1 - July 13 - 10 AM ET | 11 AM ART | 4 PM CEST | 4 PM SAST
