SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT POLICY

GHL Engineering recognise it has a vital role in furthuring sustainable development through its procurement of works, goods and services. We are commited to working in a way that ensures we meet the needs of the environment, economy and society now and in the future.

Our objectives where possible are:

- To minimise the use of non renewable materials.
- Reduce the frequency of individual journeys.
- Comply with all relevant legislation as it relates to procurement.
- Ensure the products which we produce have maximum durability, can be recycled or repaired.
- Purchase products which are energy efficient.
- Use local suppliers and sub contactors to minimise the environmental impact associated with transportation and to support the local economy.
- Work with suppliers to increase sustainability throughout the supply chain.
- Use minimum packaging and if possible re-use or recycle.

To highlight awareness of our policy we will provide training and support to encourage staff involved in purchasing to adopt a more sustainable approach, to reduce costs and the environmental impact of goods and services we buy


We will review periodically the sustainable risk and impact of goods and services we buy.


Our aim is to ensure that the goods, services we procure not only represent good value for money but also have positive impacts on society and the economy and cause minimum damage to the environment.
