PARTNERS & SUPPLIERS

It is our objective to work with partners and suppliers in ways that minimize negative impact on the environment. 

 

The Abbey Group will meet our need for goods, services, works and utilities by choosing solutions that have a reduced impact on the environment throughout their life-cycle, as compared to alternative products/solutions. The Abbey Group will consider which products, services or works are the most suitable on the basis both of their environmental impact and other factors, such as the information available, what is on the market, the technology, costs and viability. This policy states the principles Abbey intends to comply with when purchasing goods and services.

 

The policy dictates that we:-

 

  • Work closely with suppliers who have environmental certification or verified environmental credentials.
     

  • Work closely with suppliers who have developed KPIs for energy, water and waste consumption/generation and carbon emissions.
     

  • Work closely with suppliers that have made responsible commitments toward their local communities
     

  • Favour suppliers who limit waste (including non-recyclable waste)
     

  • Work closely with suppliers who advocate responsible purchasing (Fair Trade, environmentally certified products etc.) and where the use of local and organic produce is promoted
     

  • Work closely with suppliers who limit the use of chemicals – pesticides, cleaning product and weed control
     

  • Work closely with suppliers who will limit use of single use plastic in their offering
     

  • Work closely with suppliers who provide drinking water without charge to customers (to include refilling customers’ drinking vessels)
     

  • Work closely with suppliers whose staff are fully trained in delivering on environmental objectives and targets
     

  • Evaluate all proposals submitted by suppliers according to a set of criteria covering quality, performance and sustainable development
