We are committed to procuring all our requirements in an efficient, fair, equitable, safe and environmentally conscious way.
Our approach includes
We are proud to be an equal opportunities employer and are keen to work with suppliers that not only abide by equal opportunities legislation, but are delivering best practice in this area.
As an environmentally conscientious business, we strive to work with suppliers that deliver services with the least possible impact on the environment. We purchase fewer environmentally damaging products, promote greater use of renewable sources, and work with suppliers who adopt environmentally friendly practices.
Health and safety
We are committed to ensuring the health, safety and welfare of our employees, and those who work for us. We will only award contracts to organisations who can prove they meet the required health and safety standards.
Complying with rules and regulations
Our policies and procedures comply with the appropriate UK and EU law, which governs our contracting activities for obtaining quotations and tenders, and awarding contracts. As a result of this we:
- follow processes that are ethical and compliant with legal obligations
