Procurement

The purchasing of goods can have a profound environmental impact when considering the process by which a product is created and delivered. ?The embodied energy of an item, from its initial raw resource extraction, to is manufacturing and processing, its packaging, delivery and end of life all add up to an environmental impact that is unintended but that can often be curtailed through sustainable procurement practices. ?Conventional procurement would generally see an institution evaluate based on price and quality.? An institution practicing sustainable procurement attempts to also evaluate other extrinsic elements and costs that involve environmental, social and economic impacts in order to avoid and/or minimize broader adverse impacts.??
