Sustainable Procurement

Western acknowledges the potential negative environmental impacts associated with development. As a result, Western has committed to incorporating sustainable practices into all aspects of operations.  In alignment with Western’s Policy on Environment and Sustainability, Procurement Services will endeavour to purchase products and services that meet a comprehensive range of sustainability criteria that mirror the University’s values, sustainability principles and goals.

Procurement Services have developed the Sustainable Purchasing Guide as a tool to share our recommendations for purchasing products that balance economic, environmental and social benefits, in an effort to further advance Western's sustainability efforts.
