Taronga Sustainable Purchasing Policy

Taronga has a Sustainable Purchasing Policy in place to ensure that environmental sustainability is considered when purchasing goods and services.

Within this policy Taronga is ensuring that supplier adhere to the illustrated requirements:

  • A total of 85% of office paper to contain recycled content
  • A minimum 4-star rating under the Minimum Energy Performance Standards Scheme (MEPS)
  • A minimum of 4-star rating under the Water Efficiency Labelling and Standards Scheme (WELS)
  • Products and services for outdoor use Smart Approved WaterMark

The policy can be viewed here: 

Sustainable Procurement ISO20400

Taronga is also in the early phase of investigating how sustainable procurement can be improved to make it more holistic, be based on a scientific approach and aligned to the new Sustainable Procurement Standard ISO20400, which has been launched early 2017.

As part of this objective, a sustainability scorecard is also in the process of being developed, which is anticipated to have significant impact to ensure sustainability is taken into consideration throughout Taronga’s supply chain.
