Definition by the Think Tank Observatoire des Achats Responsables (Sustainable Procurement Observatory): “Any purchase that, in the spirit of fairness to all stakeholders, incorporates requirements, specifications and criteria that safeguard and enhance the environment and social progress, and that promote economic growth, particularly through better efficiency, improved service quality and full cost optimisation (immediate and deferred) within a value chain.”
