Responsible procurement

07 August 2016

​Responsible procurement is the 'golden thread' running through the City Corporation's overarching City Procurement Strategy. It recognises our responsibility to help the organisation procure value for money goods, services and works, whilst maximising social value, minimising environmental impacts and ensuring the ethical treatment of people throughout its supply chains.

The City Corporation is continually strengthening its pursuit of these goals, grouped into three key pillars of Responsible Procurement, with value for money principles applying throughout:

  1. Social value – Leveraging service and works contracts to protect and enhance the health and wellbeing of local people and the local environment, providing skills and employment opportunities and promoting the local economy.
  2. Environmental sustainability – Minimising environmental impacts, promoting animal welfare and improving efficiency throughout the supply chains of all goods, services and works procured by the City Corporation.
  3. Ethical sourcing – Ensuring that human rights and employment rights are protected throughout the City's supply chains and encouraging responsible business practices.

Suppliers to the City Corporation will be expected to share in our commitment to responsible procurement through the delivery of goods, services and works – the extent to which will depend on the nature, scope and value of each contract.

The way in which we pre-qualify bidders, specify requirements and evaluate potential suppliers reflects the Corporation’s commitment to responsible procurement, as do the terms and conditions of the contracts we make.

The City of London includes air quality as one of its most significant environmental risks. Due to the City's commitment to tackling air pollution a Procurement Policy was written to support the City's Air Quality Strategy.
