How we are leading the way
We have developed our own guidelines for ‘green procurement’ that are aligned with our SDGs. Having achieved ISO 14001 in 2020, An Post has begun to integrate sustainable procurement into the business.
As we align with ISO 20400, An Post is one of the first public sector companies in Ireland to audit suppliers in relation to decent work, climate action and sustainable production and consumption. A Supplier Sustainability Questionnaire was issued to a number of our top suppliers (based on spend and risk) to assess responsible and sustainable business behaviour. This is the first stage in assessing our suppliers against our SDGs.
