Sustainable Purchasing

Our Perspective

It is important to the City that we consider the environmental and health effects of products from their whole life cycle, and to be aware of the impacts they might have on our community and ecosystem. 

The City seeks to buy products and services that have a low impact on human health and the environment, and that support communities and economies. 

Efforts are guided by city-wide initiatives and policies that are aimed at:

  • reducing waste and greenhouse gas emissions;
  • increasing reuse and recycling;
  • maintaining the health of residents, and;
  • supporting fair competition.
