Good inventory management practices reduces resource use and waste production and facilitates cost savings


When purchasing we consider the following:

  • Agreement on take-back programmes whenever possible
  • Sustainability of product packaging
  • Potential to divert products and packaging from landfill
  • Amount of material and type of material used to produce the product
  • Amount of material, energy or water an instrument uses
  • Product toxicity and/or use of hazardous chemicals compared to similar products
  • Integration of the world goals in tenders
  • Consolidating orders
