Green purchasing is based on the simple premise that every purchase impacts on the environment in some way, and is about choosing to buy products and services that are less damaging to our environment and human health than competing products and services that serve the same purpose.
ECO-Buy is a not for profit Centre of Excellence in Environmental Purchasing, established to encourage the purchasing of environmentally preferable (green) products and services. To achieve this, ECO-Buy offers support to organisations to ‘green’ their purchasing, providing a wide range of services and resources, from policy and strategy development and implementation to practical tools, templates and advice.
Workshops and training session times are available in the first half of 2010. Read the rest of this entry »
