Sustainable Purchasing

 

Do you consider the sustainability of your businesses purchases?

Every business regularly buys goods and services.  How about thinking twice and making a sustainable choice when you next make a purchase.
Your business may purchase everything from tea and coffee for the office, paper and cartridges for the printer, uniforms for your workers, carpet for a refurbishment, mobile phones, electricity and the list continues.

Sustainable purchasing is all about thinking twice and making a choice when you purchase goods and services.

Sustainable products are those that;

- contain recycled content
- are reused or recycled at end of life
- reduce greenhouse gas emissions
- save water and/or energy
- are non toxic
- help protect biodiversity and habitat
- are made or recycled locally
- minimise unnecessary purchasing
- provide long term value for money.
