What you want:
Starting from scratch, on a fixed timeline, you need to set (and comply with) purchasing standards, supported by all stakeholders, to help the organisation reach its sustainability goals, mitigate any PR issues and enhance branding for the hosted event.  You first need to be successful in the bid process by creating winning hosting proposals that include robust descriptions of strategic issues and outline proposed best management practices in the areas of sustainability and ethical purchasing.

What we offer:
We bring ethical and sustainable purchasing programs developed and tested with an Olympic organising committee that are easily integrated with other business functions.  We provide support and training to ensure programs deliver results. Every host city and region has specific needs; we coordinate high value stakeholder consultation and communication programs to build broad based local and international support for the event. If involved soon enough, we can help improve the strength of your bid.

Who we work with:
We have led the creation and integration of an ethical and sustainable purchasing program for the Vancouver Organising Committee for the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games that is helping them reach their sustainability goals, set a new benchmark for ESP purchasing in the Olympic movement and benefit the Olympic brand.
