Sustainable purchasing

The manufacture and supply of products often generates hidden environmental, health and social impacts. From harvesting raw materials, the manufacturing and packaging process, to transportation requirements; all of these play a role in determining the product's sustainability footprint and whether it is a good sustainable purchasing choice. 

Sustainable purchasing is an effort to buy greener, healthier and more sustainable products that also meet price, performance and quality requirements. It aims to reduce negative environmental and social impacts by prompting consumers to consider these impacts and buy better products and services. This could include buying from local suppliers or choosing products made from recycled materials.
