About the Event
Who is this for?
- Are you a large purchaser (government, corporation or institution) who is interested in learning about social procurement?
- Are you a large purchaser (government, corporation or institution) who has a social or sustainable procurement policy?
- Are you a business who sells to governments or corporations? And do you have a social value through your ownership or social purpose?
Then come to this event to learn more about social procurement opportunities outside the usual suspects and find your next buyer or supplier!
Every purchase has an economic, environmental, cultural, and social impact, whether intended or not. With social suppliers and purchasers at all levels in the marketplace, social procurement is redefining how goods and services are bought and sold.
This event will bring together purpose driven purchasers and social value suppliers to build relationships that generate positive impact for communities in Edmonton. We invite community, public sector and private sector to come learn about social procurement and how you can buy and sell with impact.
Buy with Impact
We will feature leading social and sustainable procurement examples from the City of Edmonton and best practice from across Canada. Come learn about simple steps and tools you can take to leverage your purchasing power for community good.
Sell with Impact
Social enterprises, diverse and inclusive businesses, and Indigenous businesses will be there to showcase their products and the community impact that is created when you buy from them. Come hear their stories and build relationships at the social value supplier trade show.
Grow the Social Value Marketplace
The collective effort of leveraging social value from purchasing has a powerful and positive ripple effect in our communities. By redefining how goods and services are bought and sold, we are taking back control from the invisible hand of capitalism. As we build a social value marketplace, we are unleashing the transformative power of the marketplace - to buy and sell with impact.
