Through High Impact Procurement, organisations in the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area – from startups to SMEs and corporates – contribute to a fair, sustainable and innovative procurement environment. We focus primarily on Diversity & Inclusion in recruitment and retention of employees at a strategic or management level. Please get in touch, especially when you would like to contribute.
Why should you make an impact through your purchasing?
With every euro you as an organisation spend on products and services, you have the option to choose the more sustainable, fairer or more innovative alternative. This makes procurement a key driver for a smart, green and healthy future of the Amsterdam Metropolitan Area. The Amsterdam Economic Board is initiator of this movement.
What do we do?
For their own core business, all organisations purchase their specific raw materials, services and products. Almost every organisation needs generic purchases, such as energy, office space, ICT, catering, office furniture and transportation. If we’d all make an impact when purchasing, hiring or leasing these facility items, the returns on that investment would be interesting in may ways:
- It would encourage the demand and supply for things that contribute to a smart, green and healthy future, such as: clean transportation, circular furniture and healthy catering.
- It would reduce the demand for things we actually no longer want, such as: fossil energy and disposables.
