Our commitments

Our procurement decisions can have major social, economic and environmental impacts, both for current and future generations.

Sustainable procurement

Reducing our impact

As a major contributor to the North West's economy, our purchasing needs are bigger than most. From the second we buy a product we’re contributing to its environmental impact. If we can make the right purchasing decisions we can have a positive impact on the environment, the economy and society in general by:

  • Reducing whole life costs
  • Minimising damage to the environment
  • Conserving natural resources
  • Reducing pollution
  • Reducing waste for landfill
  • ‘Future proofing’ supply chains and investments
