“Our detailed Strategic Plan has led to multiple, award-winning projects, most of which are still on-going because of their comprehensiveness and long-term scope.”  

Sustainable Procurement

Vision developed by the Sustainable Procurement Core Team

“Procurement Services promotes and leads the way in establishing a culture of sustainable procurement practices at McGill and in its wider community.”

First FIVE YEAR STRATEGIC Plan (2013-2018)

Procurement Services established a Core Team of diverse McGill community stakeholders to help develop its first Sustainable Procurement Strategic Plan. This Core Team identified the following priorities:

  • Raise awareness and provide training to those who purchase on behalf of the University or influencing such purchases.

  • Provide tools and methods to facilitate more sustainable purchasing decision-making.

  • Demonstrate leadership and share best practices with other institutions.

  • Maintain a triple bottom line perspective (social, economic, and environmental considerations), to guide all purchasing-related decision-making.

  • Improve logistics.
