Intro to the Sustainable Procurement category



ISv2.0 Sustainable Procurement category

Following the delivery of ISv1.2 in May 2016, ISv2.0 was envisioned as a comprehensive update to the full suite of credit benchmarks and a re-examination of business as usual and best practice within Australia and New Zealand, as well as globally.

This category was influenced by a series of mapping exercises performed before the development of ISv2.0 showing that supply chain risks were a gap for the rating tool. The Sustainable Procurement category was developed from an initial scope developed by ISCA’s Sustainable Procurement Advisory Group in November 2016. The draft credits and additional guidance provided below were developed by a team at Action Sustainability Asia Pacific in collaboration with Tonkin + Taylor.

Layout of the credits

ISv2.0 will better define the activities required for each rating. To do this, we are testing different layout ideas for the credits. These categories have different credits for the Planning, Design, As Built and Operational phases. As a result, it is important that when you are reading the credits, you make note of which phase it is relating to and your comments reflect the requirements of that phase. This approach is different to ISv1.2 which has one set of credits for Design and As Built and another for Operations.

We would like your feedback on this layout and any ideas for different approaches.
