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."
