SUSTAINABLE PURCHASING GETS ITS OWN ORGANIZATION (2013)
SUSTAINABLE Purchasing Leadership Council (SPLC) - Emory is one of the founding members of the SPLC. The SPLC brings together professionals from institutions, industry, and government. The SPLC kicked off the Council's work this summer with two events: the SPLC Launch Webcast Event and the Founding Summit. In 2014 we expect to see technical development begin on a number of important work streams that will produce tools for use by members. See more about the SPLC here.
