Sustainable Procurement: how to put this into practice

Our governments have made some big commitments to a better world and time is ticking. We have the opportunity to present to you some of the most recent developments and upcoming legislations in the field of sustainable procurement. We would also like to discuss the Sustainable Procurement ABC with you, to help you shape sustainable procurement within your organization. On top of that, Boskalis would like to inspire you by sharing a number of best practices.

Together with his team, he won the Dutch Souring Award in 2014 in both the Sustainability category and the overall ranking.
