NUI Galway recognises that there are environmental, ecological and health consequences associated with the purchasing, operation and disposal of products and services used throughout the University. The University is committed to working with the relevant Government agencies to develop green procurement criteria that will be used where relevant when tendering for goods, services and works. The NUI Galway Procurement Policy pledges to ‘incorporate the use of Green Procurement practices in our processes and procedures, in an effort to reduce our environmental impact in conjunction with CUSP’.
