What is Green Procurement?
“Green procurement is the procurement of products and services that have a lesser or reduced effect on human health and the environment when compared with competing products or services that serve the same purpose. A green product is one that is less harmful than the next best alternative.”

Main Goal of the Green Procurement Program at LHSC
To introduce green procurement into all LHSC purchasing choices and decisions, so that environmental considerations are weighted along with availability, quality, dependability and price of products and materials. LHSC will strive to replace and/or reduce products and services used at our facilities that are proven harmful to the environment and to long-term human health.
