Procurement & Tendering

By: South East Coast Ambulance Service NHS Trust


The greater part of the greenhouse gases emitted indirectly from the Trust occur at the procurement stage. As part of the ongoing commitment to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions we will now insist, as part of our Tendering Process, that we are supplied with copies of potential suppliers' Environmental Procedures, Policies and Statements. This will enable us to check that where possible they are only using sustainable resources. We also contact our suppliers at regular intervals to remind them of, and reiterate our environmental requirements.

To become more sustainable and reduce our impact on the environment
