Maximizing Purchaser Influence on Sustainability Standards: Considering Future Approaches


– Value NSF sees in purchasers engaging in standards development, support NSF offers to engage, upcoming standard development opportunities at NSF
Why ANSI wants purchasers to engage in standards development, ways ANSI offers support to engage, how to identify opportunities for engagement
Questions to discuss:
What are the major barriers to purchaser engagement in sustainability standards development efforts?
Is there a role SPLC could play to increase purchaser voices in sustainability standards development efforts? (Like ECOS?)
What resources/approaches would purchasers like to see offered by ANSI, NSF and other Standards Development Organizations to better facilitate their engagement?
