Sustainable procurement

The Corporate Procurement Strategy (see Contracts & Tenders page) and Sustainable Procurement Policy (PDF 160.1KB) set out the council's approach to sustainable procurement to ensure that social, environmental, ethical and economic sustainability are included in all the councils purchasing decisions.

Our suppliers are key to delivering the policy and we encourage them to help us deliver continuous improvement on our sustainability commitments. See our making sustainable purchasing decisions page for more information.

Banning of single use plastics

The Brighton & Hove City Council Procurement Team encourage its suppliers to be more responsible regarding ‘single use plastics’ following a Notice of Motion carried unanimously at Council on 2 November 2017 which requested Brighton & Hove City Council to consider a ban on the purchase of ‘single use plastics’ in all its buildings and agencies. Further information can be read on page 353, Item 42(b).
