Green Procurement Group
The Green Procurement Group was formed in 2007 with the aim of
opening dialogue between companies throughout the supply chain,
from manufacturers to contractors, to work together to achieve
carbon, energy and waste reduction targets.
The latest meeting, hosted by Jewson's Sustainability and
Quality Director Steve Millward, concluded with a continued focus
on how they could achieve a 20% reduction in product packaging
within the Saint-Gobain Building Distribution supply chain. Also on
the agenda was BS8902 and 6001.
Steve Millward commented: "The latest meeting was a huge step
forward and the commitment from its members, all of which are
leading industry figures, is extremely encouraging. Focusing on
responsible sourcing is a big step with consideration being given
to setting hard targets in this area."
