Seven application methods have been brought together by The Abu Dhabi Police (ADP) aiming to promote their green initiative to its suppliers and persuade them to contribute to the efforts of reducing emissions and diminishing the consumption power, water, and other non-renewable natural resources.
In a forum prepared by ADP for its partners, the seven approaches will concentrate on energy conservation, electrical appliances maintenance public health and safety, suppliers’ relationship management, recycling of materials and commodities, and building or vehicle maintenance. These achieve helpful practices within the place of work as a clearly defined scheme that promotes environmentally friendly materials.
The Environment and Green Applications Forum epitomizes the Ministry of Interior’s advocacy in creating environmentally friendly, green applications. It also coincides with the agenda of the UAE in green development, corresponding to the National Strategy for Green Growth. Incorporating the methods in the everyday actions of all organizational units associated with the institution ensures the achievement of plans and projects that help in the realization of the goals of Abu Dhabi Police.
The suppliers are reminded that they should consider the environment in the application of policies and must comply with all legislative requirements and must secure an International Organization for Standardization Certificate ISO 1400. Suppliers are also requested to gauge and determine water and air emanation into the environment and state their findings as noted with the requisites of the Environment Agency – Abu Dhabi. Suppliers have to use more resourceful packaging process in order to avoid high costs and discharges from using these materials. Reduce, reuse, and recycle policy was encouraged and must be integrated in the production processes and there must be secure methods for managing harmful waste and the storage and disposal should be well regulated.
Through the evaluation of the supplier’s environmental actions, it is possible that the unwanted effects of the procurement process will be trimmed down and will probably save costs in general.
