Procurement

Since early 2007, Wesleyan University has sought procurement of supplies and services with low environmental impact and has developed contracts with suppliers that offer alternative sustainable products. Purchasing continues to reduce supply chain waste through consolidated ordering and scheduled deliveries, so that products are delivered in bulk instead of through many smaller deliveries, and reductions in supplier packaging materials. We continually seek purchasing habits that reduce emissions, including buying locally produced products, products made from recycled materials, and engaging with suppliers about sustainability.
