Since 2009 we have been working with our suppliers on a sustainable procurement approach that balances the long-term needs of local communities and suppliers with the challenges of effective buying.

We work closely with suppliers to achieve sustainable results including reductions in waste, CO2 emissions and water and material usage. We actively encourage our suppliers to work with their local communities promoting apprenticeships, back-to-work schemes and have volunteers working with communities and charities.
