East Lothian Council Sustainable Procurement Policy

East Lothian Council was assisted through Interreg NSR ProCirc mentoring support to develop a Sustainable Procurement Policy, with a focus on minimising the environmental impact of the local authority‚Äôs consumption while maximising the benefits to the local area (link).

It is envisioned that the policy will allow the service users to embed sustainability into tenders with changes rolled out in phases to ensure a smooth transition for staff and service users and maximise engagement from suppliers.
