Approach of green procurement of Saga
The last update date:
With green procurement
Green procurement is to give priority to products that there is little load to environment, and to purchase after thinking about environment as well as price when we purchase products, and having thought about whether, at first, it is necessary to really buy.
If many consumers give priority to products with a little load to environment and will purchase, the price of products falls down, and more people come to purchase, and company will further lay emphasis on development such as products that there is little load to environment.
In this way, for it to make recycling society with a little load to environment that individual consumers work on green procurement; big; help.
