Sustainability:

Sustainable Supply Chain

Harvard incorporates a sustainable supply chain and appropriate procurement policy of select products, tools and equipment tailored for each client site.

Harvard has fostered a sustainable procurement system that is comprised of nationally selected vendors and locally recognized distributors. Other attributes include an environmentally preferred standardized purchasing policy that includes “Just in Time” inventory control to help reduce shipping frequencies and storage space.

The proximity of the distributors in relation to Harvard operations and client facilities help reduce our carbon emissions and overall corporate carbon footprint; reported annually via the Carbon Disclosure Project.
