What is sustainable procurement?

  • Product lifecycle

    Sustainable procurement is about managing a product’s entire lifecycle. It involves evaluating whether it can be reused, remanufactured or repurposed.

  • Sustainable Procurement Strategies

    Systematic approaches integrating environmental, social and economic considerations into purchasing decisions. For example, following the Government Buying Standards.

  • Limit single-use plastics

    The UK government’s 25-year plan for the environment aims to eliminate avoidable plastic waste by 2042. Our contracts can help you limit single-use plastic from existing and new agreements at no extra cost.

  • Carbon net zero

    The government aims to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2050. We can help you transition to renewable, low-carbon energy sources such as LED lighting, low-emission vehicles and low-carbon construction materials.
