We asked for your views on our Draft Sustainable and Ethical Procurement Policy.


Our draft Policy set out the Council’s approach to procuring goods, services and works in a way that benefits local communities and the local economy, minimises damage to the environment and ensures human rights are upheld in our supply chains.

Here are some details about the draft Policy:

  • The Policy focuses on four priority areas: social value, ethical practices, supporting the local economy and climate action
  • Each area sets our commitments and our expectations of suppliers
  • The Policy includes a framework for minimum, enhanced and preferred standards for each area. This framework provides details of what an organisation needs to do or provide to meet minimum standards and where they can add additional value to contracts
  • This Policy will be implemented gradually, initially targeting the largest contracts, to make sure that no business is negatively impacted by its introduction. Where suppliers do not yet meet minimum standards, particularly small, local or minority-led businesses, the Council will support them to work towards meeting these standards
