Free sustainable procurement e-learning for Catering and Food Services
WRAP, an organisation dedicated to improving the level of recycling in the UK and creating a market for recycled materials, has developed a free e-learning module for sustainable procurement of Catering and Food Services. The online module is part of a series designed to inform procurers how to sustainably procure products and services under key categories.
The e-learning module includes good practice examples, and aims to guide organisations to use sustainable procurement as a means to make cost savings, use fewer resources and send less waste to landfill.
The module for sustainable procurement of Catering and Food Services examines the opportunities for embedding sustainability within the procurement process. It is divided into sub-modules covering the procurement cycle from background and policy information, through to developing specifications, evaluation and contract management.
