Delivering Higher Quality Through Sustainable Procurement
We promote sustainability not by any single activity but rather by the totality of our efforts to execute projects with excellence. By improving the sustainability in the equipment, materials, and services we procure, we are improving the quality of our projects by helping to protect people and the environment, promote economic development, and partner with communities and society.

Suppliers and contractors will be evaluated favorably in bid evaluations by demonstrating a comprehensive understanding of, and ability to respond to, these and other sustainability aspects.
