We are committed to ensuring that work that contributes to our success considers the needs of the present and future generations. We have set out our sustainable supply chain strategy accordingly.
Our strategy is based on The British Standard for Sustainable Procurement BS8903. The standard balances economic, environmental and social considerations such as whole life costing, expenditure analysis and best value.
We are using a category management model to identify where we can improve sustainability criteria in our tendering process and to work more closely with our suppliers to improve their understanding of our requirements and sustainability objectives.
