TIP #5

Create a policy or set of procedures for onboarding new suppliers. Writing up a formal policy or set of procedures for your workplace will ensure the commitment lives on and can help with consistency across departments and teams. We often see commitments die off after a passionate advocate leaves the role, so if you care enough to start the process, formalize it. Meet with others from your company who can improve your company’s impact. Are your administrators ordering organic food? Does your office supply company provide recycled products? Document your findings. If you’re collecting information about suppliers, make sure you have a way to track it. A simple spreadsheet to identify if a supplier has responded to your request, or a notes field to track what information they sent you will be helpful when you review suppliers in the future. FORMALIZE YOUR EFFORTS
