London compaies give backing to green code

13 February 2011 | Adam Leach

The BBC, Balfour Beatty and FM Conway have all joined the mayor of London’s “green procurement code”.

They are the latest organisations to sign up to Boris Johnson’s scheme. Adopting the code commits the businesses to assess their environmental purchasing performance to identify areas to improve and to ensure senior management support for green buying.

In return the firms benefit from advice on sustainable procurement and an audit of their progress to identify the areas that require development across the supply chain. To comply with the code’s objectives, the mayor’s office conducts a performance review and gives organisations a rating of gold, silver or bronze.

Membership also means they can enter the Mayor of London’s Green Awards 2011,which recognise organisations that have addressed environmental issues in their supply chains. Last year's winners included Ove Arup & Partners, The Metropolitan Police and Ofgem.
