Measure Your Sustainable Procurement With The Barometer 2020
CBSR is proud to partner with ECPAR to launch the Barometer 2020 - a national survey to benchmark sustainable procurement in Canada. If you work with any type of organization of 500 employees or more, than the Barometer 2020 is a great tool to see how you rank and what you can do to better leverage your procurement processes in order to achieve even more positive social and environmental outcomes.

The results will be made public in October 2020 with each respondent getting a confidential, personalized information sheet on their performance and how it compares to other respondents across Canada. A full report will also be published based on the aggregated data of all respondents that will give a full picture of sustainable procurement across the country.

When you have completed the survey you will receive a media kit that you can use to let people know you participated and showcase your leadership.

Please help us collect this valuable data. Click below to begin the Barometer 2020 questionnaire now.

Humans of CBSR: Peter ter Weeme and Carmen Turner
Our Humans of CBSR Instagram series has two new posts featuring Peter ter Weeme, CBSR's second ever Board Chair, and Carmen Turner, former executive assistant and membership coordinator for CBSR. Both have gone on to have very impressive careers following their years with CBSR.

" From my standpoint, the climate crisis and over-consumption are critical issues facing the planet so I think it will be important for CBSR to support Canadian businesses to effectively address those issues.” - Peter ter Weeme

"I think the value of CBSR will be what it has always been - a platform to connect people who want to transition the world to a sustainable society through the power of commerce. But with emerging and exciting technology, how CBSR does this can evolve and I think that is the exciting part!” - Carmen Turner
