Why should my organisation sign up to the Green Procurement Code?
The combined purchasing power of London based companies has huge potential to positively tackle the capital's waste problem, reduce carbon emissions and contribute to the Mayor of London’s target of cutting the capital’s carbon emissions by 60% by 2025. By signing up the Green Procurement Code you can reduce the effects of your activities on the environment.
