See the tabs on the left to find out about the latest ECO-Buy events and training sessions, the ECO-Buy Awards and other sustainable procurement related events.
ECO-Buy applies sustainable procurement principles to the events and training sessions we hold, drawing on guidance we develop for our members. This includes, where possible:
- Minimising transport emissions by locating events near public transport and encouraging visitors to use this option
- Selecting catering with strong sustainability credentials (for example organic and fairtrade certified)
- Minimising resource use and maximising recycling at the event
- Minimising the Greenhouse gas emissions associated with powering the event (for example through use of Greenpower and emissions offsets)
