Sustainable Contracting: Why You Should Care?

While goals and principles provide the framework for sustainability, they will be achieved through contracts! Our ability to deliver a better world depends on shared commitment and performance - commitments that are clear, performance that is measured. It is the contracting process that binds us together and turns aspirations into reality.
