WHY PLEDGE?

Sustainable procurement is about considering the environmental, social and economic impacts of purchased goods and services. Through sustainable procurement your organisation can build resilience and become future proofed through increased efficiency and effectiveness.

In April 2017, the International organisation for Standardisation (ISO) released the world’s first ISO 20400 International Standard for Sustainable Procurement. ISO 20400 is designed to ensure that the procurement policies of organisations, both big and small, are robust and address sustainable supply chain issues.

At GECA, we believe that independent certification is the only way to make sure you are genuinely buying sustainable products, thanks to the built-in auditing and assurance processes. With so many certified products available, there has never been a better time for organisations and businesses to start their positive procurement journey. GECA is here to support your sustainable procurement journey and will help to share your positive pledge actions with your employees and customers.

 

We pledge to develop, document and implement a Positive Procurement Policy to govern all purchasing decisions by 31 December 2020 (if not already).
