Sustainable Procurement

Sustainable Procurement is defined as 'a process whereby organisations meet their needs for goods, services, works and utilities in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis and generates benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society, the economy and the environment'.

  • Committing to the Suppliers’ Charter
  • Considering the whole life cost of goods and services procured
  • Considering the environmental and social impact of goods and services in the tender process
  • Communicating and promoting sustainability to all employees and ensuring that it is included in the tender process where relevant
  • Using the Public Contracts Scotland portal for goods and services above £50,000
