New! City approves Sustainable Purchasing Policy and Guide
The purpose of the Sustainable Purchasing Policy and Guide is to increase the development and awareness of environmental purchasing at the City of Windsor. The Policy and Guide will help staff include environmental criteria into the City's purchases where possible.
The Sustainable Purchasing Guide is full of information about what to ask for when trying to find environmentally friendly products at home or at work! It also provides information on which environmental certifications to look for and includes products in a number of categories, including cleaning products, furniture, office supplies, landscaping and even food.
The City of Windsor's Sustainable Purchasing Policy can be found on page 7 of the Guide.
