For the 5th edition, HEC and EcoVadis publish the European Sustainable Procurement Barometer, which analyses practices of 90 major European companies.
“After 9 years of improvements, beyond tools and practices, a strong management drive is required to cross a new frontier.”
The conclusion of the “HEC-ACA Sustainable Procurement Survey – 2005” was “ Procurement professionals are no longer asking “why implement sustainable procurement practices”, but “how can I do it”? ”. The study also identified that a lack of indicators and tools were key concerns. Key objectives of the 2007 survey were to focus on those two issues while widening the scope of the study to include other European countries in addition to France.
