Using the case of a firm you have selected as well as relevant published journal articles (at least 5) and secondary sources such as company reports, the trade and the business press, discuss the importance of sustainable procurement for organizations in gaining competitive advantage. You should strive for a good balance of a review of relevant literature and analysis of the selected case.
Case selection might be based on various factors, including but not limited to:
• prominent recent problems in the supply chain related to sustainable purchasing,
• firms that particularly strongly emphasise their sustainability credentials,
• firms that you may know about or be interested in.
