Environmental purchasing is the purchase of products and services that have a minimal or reduced environment and human health impact. In addition to improved environmental performance, many environmentally preferred products work as well or better than traditional products and can even save money.
We recognize the impact office equipment has on the environment and strive to purchase products that take into account environmental considerations. For example:
- We purchase 50% or 100% recycled content paper throughout the University.
- Environmental considerations are included, when appropriate, in tenders for the supply of goods to the University.
- We encourage our suppliers to reduce, reuse and recycle packaging.
- We are continually working with the University's Stationery Supplier to deliver environmentally friendly products.
