SoEPS recognises the importance of Sustainable Development in creating a better quality of life now and for generations to come. We also recognise the need to align economic, social and environmental goals. A key element of our own sustainability policy is supporting the delivery of sustainable procurement not only through the suppliers that we contract directly with but also with the suppliers that our two main distributors/sourcing partners use (namely Crown Commercial Service (CCS) and NHS Supply Chain). SoEPS policy also encompasses the policies of these two organisations.
SoEPS is committed to achieving value for money and delivering economic, environmental and social benefits through its procurement activities. SoEPSs ambition is to ensure that sustainable procurement is being consistently undertaken in practice across the organisation.
