Socially Responsible Procurement Policy

​The Socially Responsible Procurement Policy​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​ (2​.1mb PDF)​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Link opens in a new window aims to ensure that the Council maximises the social, economic, environmental and cultural wellbeing benefits delivered for communities through its annual £410 million procurement spend. 

The Policy sets out the Council’s commitments in respect of these six key priority areas: 

  • Local Training and Employment - to create inclusive employment and training opportunities for local people in order to reduce unemployment and raise the skills level of our local workforce,  especially in target groups such as long term unemployed. 
  • Think Cardiff First - to take account of the social and economic impacts of buying locally when commissioning and contracting, and asking our suppliers and contractors to do the same.
  • Partners in Communities - to play an active role in the local community and support community organisations, especially in those areas and communities with the greatest need.
  • Green and Sustainable - to protect the environment, minimise waste, reduce energy consumption and use resources efficiently.
  • Ethical Employment - to employ the highest ethical standards in our own operations and those within our supply chain.
  • Promoting the Wellbeing of Young People and Vulnerable Adults - to work with the support of entire community including local businesses, safeguarding and promoting the rights of children, young people and vulnerable adults

The Policy is structured around the following three key Welsh Government initiatives:
