Source: Responsible Purchasing Network

After much research, we have charted a course to launch a Responsible Purchasing Exam. The purpose of the exam will be to:

  1. Educate procurement and sustainability professionals about socially responsible and environmentally sustainable purchasing practices.
  2. Promulgate harmonized and coordinated approaches to responsible purchasing.
  3. Provide a professional qualification for individuals in the responsible purchasing field.

The Exam Panel will assist and advise RPN in collecting, vetting, and finalizing exam content. Panelists should expect to dedicate 5-10 volunteer hours per month from April to August 2009.

The RPN Steering Committee will elect three panelists. Please complete and return this simple nomination form to apply to serve as a panelist on this groundbreaking project. Download form.

Nominations Due April 16th.

Your participation in the RPN Exam Panel will have a lasting positive impact on human health and the environment by advancing the field of responsible purchasing to a new level of professionalism. We appreciate your consideration of this opportunity.
