Green Procurement Policy:

The goal of this policy is to ensure that products and services purchased or contracted will conform to the goals of our company’s Sustainability Policy. We will strive to purchase sustainable and environmentally preferable products and services that meet the company’s needs. Our Purchasing decisions shall favour:

  • Suppliers of Irish Provenance Products & Services and where the Irish offer is below our standard we will actively work with those suppliers to improve their quality and standards so that we can source from them – we commit not to set unrealistic barriers for Irish suppliers.
  • Products that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or are made with renewable energy.
  • Products that reduce the use of chemicals that are hazardous to the environment and employee and public health.
  • Suppliers who strive to improve their environmental performance and provide environmentally preferable products, and who can document the supply-chain impacts of their efforts.
  • Products that contain the highest possible percentage of postconsumer recycled content.
  • Products that reduce air and water pollution.
  • Products that reduce waste.
  • Reusable products.
  • Products that serve several functions (e.g., copier/printers, multipurpose cleaners) and reduce the overall number of products purchased.
  • Products that are recyclable or compostable.
  • Food purchasing will actively use locally produced items with a commitment to declare the provenance of all main foodstuffs to the customer at point of sale.
  • Products/Services that are available locally, regionally, or nationally in preference for overseas products/services. Cost alone will not be the deciding factor.
  • Responsibly sourced products from overseas.

Environmental and sustainable preferable products and services comparable to their standard counterparts in quality and price will receive purchasing preference. In situations where environmentally preferable products are unavailable or impractical, secondary considerations will include the environmental and sustainability management practices of suppliers and producers. The purchase of environmental and sustainable preferable products is part of our long-term commitment to the environment and sustainability. By sending a clear signal to producers and suppliers about this commitment, we aim to support a wider adoption of environmental and sustainable preferable products and practices.
