The aim of the Angus Council Sustainable Procurement Policy is to embed sustainability principles (social, economic and environmental) into all procurement within the Councils and Tayside Contracts. The proposed policy is general in its ambit but gives context and top-level commitment to the Council striving to achieve continuous improvement in its sustainable procurement. The policy is aligned to the Tayside Procurement Strategy 2011-15 and the Council's Corporate Plan 2011-15. It was approved by Angus Council at its meeting on 22 March 2012 (Report No 221/12 (50 KB PDF) Opens in a new window Opens in a new window refers).

This policy is complemented by the existing Angus Council Sustainable Construction Timber Policy for the sustainable sourcing of timber and timber products for property construction projects in place for a number of years before adoption of the general sustainable procurement policy. The Sustainable Construction Timber Policy was approved by the Council's Corporate Services Committee at its meeting on 23 October 2008 (Report No 1040/08 (50 KB PDF) Opens in a new window Opens in a new window refers).
