Sustainable Procurement Principles

Publication type: Strategies


This is our statement of intent for embedding sustainability through our procurement processes and introduces our:

  • Definition of sustainable procurement
  • Sustainable procurement priorities and processes
  • Expectations of our suppliers and their supply chains
  • Monitoring and measurement of outcomes and benefits.

These principles apply to all buying activities by us and expected of our suppliers. This includes consultants, specifiers, contractors, product manufacturers and product distributers.

These Principles support the ‘Green Thread’ of our Sustainability Strategy and our Social Impact Statement and compliments our annual ESG Report which shows our environmental, social and governance performance against the Sustainability for Housing Standard.
