Sustainable procurement

Auckland Council is a large buyer of goods, services and works — with an annual spend of over 1 billion. Where possible we use our spending power to deliver positive social, economic, environmental, and cultural outcomes for Aucklanders.

The aim of our Sustainable Procurement Framework is to drive positive change within our communities and provide council with a significant lever to achieve better outcomes for Aucklanders.

This means using contractors and suppliers with a commitment to supporting wider outcomes, going beyond price considerations and the immediate purchase of goods and services.

We are focusing our sustainable procurement efforts across five areas:

  • promoting supplier diversity with Māori and Pasifika owned businesses and social enterprises
  • working with local suppliers to deliver contracts within their local board areas
  • providing quality employment opportunities for target communities
  • zero waste by 2040
  • reducing carbon emissions.

Through sustainable procurement, we aim to deliver an improved quality of life, both now and for future generations.
