RMIT Future Ready Business Series Singapore: Catalysing change - Exploring the role of procurement in sustainable development

Earlier this year, leading academics from RMIT launched the Sustainable Procurement Disclosure Index, which assesses Australia’s top 200 businesses and their level of transparency in reporting sustainable procurement practices.


Using a methodology based on globally acceptable ethical norms and standards for business conduct, the index offers an easily accessible platform to review and assess the level of transparency in an organisation’s reporting of sustainable procurement practices.


We’re pleased to invite you to hear more about the RMIT Sustainable Procurement Disclosure Index and how its methodology might be applied in the Singapore context to help advance sustainable development.


We hope you can join us for an evening of networking and discussion with Singapore business, government, community, and RMIT academics and collaborators from Australia, Malaysia and Vietnam.
