Strategies / Comments

NSERC incorporates environmental performance considerations in procurement decision-making processes. For example, NSERC:

  • Reuses functional office supplies that are left behind when offices are vacated;
  • Integrates a recovery program for used batteries;
  • Adheres to the toner cartridge recycling program;
  • Effectively uses computers and technology to reduce paper consumption;
  • Uses environmentally friendly products, such as vegetable based inks and paper containing recycled fibres; and
  • For assets that cannot be reused or recycled, NSERC uses environmentally friendly disposal mechanisms and approved companies in the provincial recycling program.
