Sustainable Procurement

In 2023 the City of Charlottetown adopted its first Sustainable Procurement Strategy and Action Plan to support the creation and implementation of sustainable procurement policies and procedures.

Implementing sustainable procurement practices is a powerful way in which an organization can reduce greenhouse gas emissions and waste as well as ensure that the dollars they spend promote fair labor standards, equitable economic development, and community building. While sustainable procurement strives to consider many important factors alongside the cost of a purchase, it does not disregard economic sustainability and often enables cost savings in addition to environmental and social benefits.
