The Council recognises that its operations and services have an impact on the environment. To help reduced the impact the council has a One Planet Living Policy Statement. This is the council's Environmental Policy which sets out the council's aims and aspirations for sustainability.
The policy statement is reviewed regularly to ensure the document is current and reflects the council's aims and aspirations for the environment.
Sustainable procurement is a process whereby organisations meet their needs for goods, services, works and utilities in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis in terms of generating benefits to not only to the procuring organisation, but also society and the economy, whilst minimising damage to the environment (Sustainable Procurement Task Force definition 2006).
