3rd Annual CROA ResponsibilityWorks Roundtable

If Sustainability Costs You More, You’re Doing it Wrong

Join CROA for the 3rd Annual Roundtable hosted by its ResponsibilityWorks Steering Committee, which will bring together 100 executives from across business, government, NGO/nonprofit and academia committed to improving transparency and responsibility in the government contracting community.  Explore two top trends coming together for mutual benefit.

These days you can’t get through an entire day without hearing references to:

  • The urgent need for government at all levels to close increasingly large budget gaps
  • The urgent need for organizations of all stripes to engage in more sustainable practices

In fact, the White House Council on Environmental Quality launched a Sustainable Supply Chain Community of Practice on March 30th to encourage greater transparency and the sharing of sustainable supply chain best practices.  At the same time, as the Partnership for Public Service points out in Making Smart Cuts, “Billions of dollars in cuts to programs have already been agreed to” across a wide variety of programs and services,”” The report shares invaluable strategies, and a series of supporting tactics, for government leaders to employ in their efforts to meet budget cut demands.  Sustainability should be in the toolkit of every agency and contractor.

This Roundtable will demonstrate that sustainable practices, both within an organization and along its value chain, are tested and proven tools in the budget cutting battle.  This isn’t about sustainability for sustainability’s sake – doing good because it makes us feel good. This is about engaging in sustainable practices that both reduce costs and result in environmental and societal benefits.
