is responsible for ensuring that Interserve gets the best value from its supply
chain and that it meets the end customers needs safely and sustainably. We are
committed to building strong collaborative relationships with suppliers that
can maintain the highest quality of service while underpinning our values and
promoting our commitment to being a sustainable business.
Sustainable procurement is concerned with establishing a sustainable supply
chain - that is, a supply chain where environmental, ethical, social and
economic factors are considered alongside traditional factors of cost, quality
and risk. Within the supply chain factors such as labour conditions, carbon
emissions, water usage, spend with SMEs and creation of apprenticeship
opportunities may be considered. Sustainable procurement is also concerned with
the specification of what is purchased, for example the operational energy
consumption of a piece of kit.
