Sustainable Procurement

Sustainable procurement is not always as straightforward as its seems in theory, but with our years of experience and expertise CE Delft can advise you on the best way forward. Our know-how on renewable energy, transport and raw materials means we can offer robust support to procurement departments as well as suppliers.

By adopting sustainable procurement practices, government and business can reduce the environmental footprint of their supply chains and promote wider corporate social responsibility. It’s an effective means of reducing the organisation’s own CO2 emissions, advancing the circular economy and supporting green innovation upstream.

We’re up-to-date on all the latest innovations and sustainable options out in the market, making us perfectly placed to advise you on the product groups or processes yielding the greatest environmental benefit.
