The University of Canterbury (UC) has a large ecological and social footprint associated with all the goods and services it collectively purchases. As each major contract comes up for renewal/tender (e.g., computers, cleaning materials, office consumables, transport or waste management services), procurement staff work with relevant stakeholders to include sustainability, or at least environmental criteria, in the tender documents.
Contact the UC Procurement team for more information.

Learning Resources, particularly in its building construction projects, is working on including sustainability criteria in all tender documents.
