ECO-Buy Awards celebrate excellence in green purchasing

Green Puchasing is all about the consideration of environmental impacts in the procurement of goods and services.

ECO-Buy is a not for profit Centre of Excellence in Environmental Purchasing, established to enhance environmentally preferable purchasing across government and business by providing advice on how to include environmental considerations into purchasing. 

Their annual awards are the only awards to celebrate the achievements of organisations, businesses and councils in green purchasing across Australia.

It was fabulous to be in Melbourne for this innovative and sustainable event, and present our products to hundreds of sustainable professionals from business and Government. 

“It is not just about the purchase of green products, it also extends to choosing not to make a purchase or making purchases with reduced environmental impact,” said ECO-Buy CEO, Hugh Wareham.

“The ECO-Buy Awards celebrate organisations that are committed to becoming more sustainable and taking action,” said Mr Wareham.

“Green purchasing has become a priority for organisations seeking to respond to the growing demands for reductions in environmental impact,” Mr Wareham concluded.

ECO-Buy offers a range of services including membership, consultancy, green product assessment, training, research, expos, events and forums.
