Sustainable procurement on Inland Rail
Sustainability is so important to Inland Rail we have an expert team entirely dedicated to it. The team is constantly looking at how we can do things differently to create better outcomes and lasting benefits for the community and the environment. Working with our suppliers, we’re committed to achieving a positive legacy through the design and construction of Inland Rail.
We will work with hundreds of suppliers during the life of Inland Rail construction. That’s why we’ve implemented an Inland Rail Sustainable Procurement Policy. We need to be sure that our suppliers share our culture of continuous improvement and build on lessons learnt and best practices.
Our team is also developing a new Supplier Sustainability Assessment Tool that will help us work closely with suppliers through all stages of the procurement process and provide a platform to give feedback to suppliers on how they can improve their sustainability.
Our work in this area has been recognised by industry with the Infrastructure Sustainability Council of Australia (ISCA) recently publishing a case study on our Sustainable Procurement practices, written by our Senior Sustainability Advisor, Ramola Yardi and Sustainability Manager, Georgia Gosse.
