Progress Made

An evaluation of the GLA City Operations programme is being completed, which will include relevant sustainability lessons. The GLA group launched its Sustainable Food Procurement Commitment in December 2010, modelled on the London 2012 Food Vision. Each of the functional bodies of the GLA group has worked with their caterers to meet requirements around traceability of food, animal welfare standards, purchase of Fairtrade products, and reduced use of water and energy. The requirements of the Commitment will be included in all future catering tenders. A new process for identifying and mitigating ethical sourcing risk was utilised in the London 2012 Ambassadors Uniforms tender, procured by TfL on behalf of the GLA. This approach is now being replicated in TfL’s current uniforms tender. Progress Made
