Improving Sustainability is the right moral thing to do and it also results in less wastage of resources and saves money.
 
Useful information is found at:
 
- NHS Sustainable Development Unit
 
- Carbon Trust
 
- Workbook on ethical procurement for health
 

 - A good source of information is the Ethical Trade Organisation (link to their website below).

 

A new free training programme supporting NHS staff  & their suppliers to ethically procure goods and services has been launched by the Department of Health, and developed in partnership with the BMA and the Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI)

•        Module 1 of the online learning is relevant to anyone with an interest in this area.

•        Modules 2 and 3 are geared towards procurement professionals.

Each Module (they take take in the region of 20 - 30 minutes to complete)  provides information & practical advice for buyers with regards to identifying poor labour standards and how to take action through the procurement process and engagement with suppliers
