Greener purchasing

Jun 18, 2013

Interesting article on an NHS Trust's approach to procurement to be more "green". This article discusses how the South Essex NHS Trust has analysed its procurement processes and have since implemented a new process, saving money whilst also being more "green". By purchasing collectively within the Trust, the number of deliveries reduced (so vehicle emissions are reduced) and more competitive costs are achieved. This approach is something that could well be mirrored throughout a substantial amount of purchasing bodies. - whilst also being something to think about from a supplier's point of view. I.e. what you can do to support an authority with their cost reduction and sustainability objectives! Food for thought!
