October 20, 2022 by No Comments | Category Case study, Sustainable Procurement Tools

A new case study on Reducing Carbon Footprints in Hybrid Cloud Hosting Services for IT Shared Services is now available on the Sustainable Procurement Tools website.

We continue to develop our Sustainable Procurement Tools, adding new products to complement the existing materials. The latest addition is a case study from Skills Development Scotland on moving from on-premises hosting to hybrid cloud-based hosting.

This case study looks at the improvements made in the second iteration of the hybrid cloud-based hosting contract and covers reasons for the changes.

‘This case study shows how we are focussing on reducing the environmental impact of our procurements. We hope that lots of people will be able to use it to build on the work we have done around demand management, monitoring emissions and use of renewable energy sources’ Iain Skene – Procurement Manager, Skills Development Scotland

Our Sustainable Procurement Tools have been designed to help public sector organisations identify and address how they can optimise the economic, social and environmental outcomes of their procurement activity. This new product complements the existing materials already available on the Sustainable Procurement Tools:
