Choosing the right certification

Certifications are means by which organizations can respond to sustainable development challenges through their procurement processes. There are many certifications available on the market and more will certainly emerge. 

The ECPAR recommends choosing a certification based on a rigorous analysis of specific products and services and suggests that members consult the technical sheets and user guide, which explains how to use the certifications, in order to determine the most credible certification options. 
Once an organization has selected a certification, members will be referred to sites to complete their research.
