The goal for all Government procurement is value for money – securing the best mix of quality and effectiveness for the least outlay over the life of the goods or services bought. Sustainable procurement is recognised as a fundamental part of delivering value for money, particularly as it encourages a focus on whole-life costs
Principles of Sustainable Procurement include:
Reduce waste, carbon emissions, energy and water consumption and waste generation and recycling in line with targets for the Central Government Estate
Stop the buying of unsustainable products, such as timber and timber products from unsustainable or illegal sources, and
Support fair and sustainable economic growth and encourage the development of a green economy.
By achieving these things, we will not only protect natural resources and tackle climate change, but also reduce operating costs.
Chandlers archives Limited will endeavor to follow all of these principles through our document storage services and everything we do in the workplace.
