Procurement doesn’t have to cost the earth

Public Health Wales is urging anyone in the public sector to download their new guide and start reducing costs and cutting carbon whenever they are sourcing goods or services.

Procurement is currently expensive and damaging, costing the Welsh public sector approximately £7 billion each year, and 62 per cent of NHS Wales Carbon emissions coming from procurement.

The new, free, e-guide has been created to make it easy and achievable for all public sector employees in Wales to ‘Be the Change’ and start making procurement more sustainable, reduce their impact on the environment and be more globally responsible.

The guide contains an explanation of the issues and steps to take to make the procurement process less damaging to the planet with support and guidance on legislation, guidelines, useful links to other information, resources, organisations, examples, sources of advice and ideas to help those responsible to think through the procurement process and for taking practical actions.
