We want all our suppliers to share our own high sustainability standards, and we’re doing everything we can to help them improve their performance.
What we've focused on
Procurement Sustainability Forum
Our bi-annual procurement sustainability forum continues to help us focus on the key issues. The main objective of the forum is to set out the supply chain strategy for the next 12 months, aligning Mitie’s sustainability pillars with our procurement activity.
Supporting SME businesses
We took part in and chaired a Corporation of London round table event aimed at encouraging and helping SMEs to access work within the City of London. The round table event focused on issues of supplying to large organisations and how to succeed and stand out amongst competitors.
We have continued our partnership with energy and emissions data tracking portal, Ecodesk; and invited an extra 250 suppliers to sign on. We now have 950 suppliers registered – which helps us understand and improve performance.
Embed our values and beliefs into our supply chain.

We have achieved re-accreditation in the CIPS procurement review for our Technical Facilities Management business. We aspire to achieve Mitie-wide accreditation in the next three years.
With the implementation of our sustainable development framework, we will be organising client/contract specific supply chain events so that we’re not only monitoring and improving our sustainability performance, but also that of our clients, through the value chain.
