Some key points for you to consider:
- There is a huge difference between the price of a product
or service and the cost of using it. Up to 70% of the
environmental and economic costs are in design.
If you don't consider environmental attributes up front
then you are willingly bringing the problem, or inherent
inefficiency, into your organization.
- Demanding recycled content can be, but may not always be,
a step forward.
- Not all suppliers are the same. Size is not the only
characteristic that matters.
- Too often the real benefits from green procurement are not realized.
