McGill University purchases a wide variety of materials, goods and services to carry out its operations and support its educative mission.
As a large organization, the University requires a vast variety of goods and services, such as IT equipment, chemicals, vehicles, furniture, paper, appliances, travel services, cleaning products, laboratory equipment, construction materials, and so on to operate. In procuring these goods and services, McGill is unavoidably involved in complex global supply chains, which can generate social, economic and environmental impacts, both locally and abroad. That is why the University is committed to Sustainable Procurement, life-cycle thinking, and the consideration of triple bottom line (economic, environmental and social) principles throughout its purchasing activities.
