The goal of this project was to assist the Croydon Council in their green procurement efforts while evaluating staff knowledge, attitudes, and practices and providing tools for all departments and personnel to purchase environmentally sustainable products. Information was gathered through interviews and email correspondence, surveys with staff members, and documents used by the Croydon Council and other organizations. Recommendations were made to improve the borough's procurement policies and practices. These included recommendations for the writing and publicizing the policy, for the procurement process, and for employee training and tools.
