Sustainable procurement

Embedding sustainable procurement into our supply chain

Landmarc are committed to embedding the principles of sustainable procurement into our supply chain processes, and recognise the value our activities add to the prosperity of local, regional and national communities.

Sustainable procurement is procurement which has the most positive environmental, social and economic impacts possible over the entire life cycle e.g. from the material sourcing, manufacturing, distribution, use and end of life (disposal). The economic, social and environmental impacts form the three pillars of sustainability.

MOD Sustainable Procurement

The MOD Sustainable Procurement Guide describes Sustainable Procurement as good procurement. Procuring sustainably allows the MOD to meet its need for equipment, support and services that achieves value on a whole life basis.

What Landmarc does

Landmarc embeds sustainable procurement into our supply chain and purchasing decisions. Landmarc have implemented a Sustainable Procurement Policy and strategy as well as embedding the ISO 20400 Sustainable Procurement standard in our procurement operations.

Benefits of Sustainable Procurement

  • Delivering real value for money - by procuring smartly it is possible to reduce costs and ensure value for money over the life of the product or service.
  • Protecting environmental resources - overconsumption of resources is unsustainable and damaging. Sustainable Procurement can help us buy products and services that do not degrade resources that will be needed in the future.
  • Providing benefit to the community and society - supporting meaningful employment, economic opportunity and helping develop local communities


The UK introduced the Modern Slavery Act in 2015. Landmarc makes an annual statement on our webpages outlining what actions have been taken to manage Modern Slavery in our supply chain.
