Embedding responsible practices through our supply chain

This document breaks down each relevant area to procurement into what they mean, what the Home Office and HMRC will do to support them and finally what we would like our suppliers to do working in partnership with the Home Office and HMRC on a voluntary basis.



The public sector has a vital role in furthering sustainable development, through its procurement of buildings, goods, works and services. The UK Government Sustainable Development Strategy (Securing the Future) has committed the public sector to lead by example in delivering those objectives, since it was published in March 2005.
