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 Sustainable Western Experience, 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.
