You might have spotted Beacon in this months Caring Times publication. In this edition we speak about sustainable procurement and how Beacon can help care providers run a more efficient business.

In this month's edition our Director of Marketing, Diane Webster shares our top tips for running a 'greener' business, and how this can have a positive effect on your bottom line. Working with over 800 care homes throughout the UK, we know firsthand how difficult it can be to affect a change within your business. That's why in this article we suggest simple ways you can "go green". Says Diane Webster

"Care providers will want to improve their own green credentials by working with sustainable partners, which is where the importance of sustainable procurement comes in. It isn't just about cost savings; it’s about good procurement practice and sustainable purchasing strategies, which will benefit a business now and in the future."

"When you’re equipped with the tools to operate more sustain-ably through a new procurement plan, it is important to remember to communicate this strategy to
clients. There are several accreditation bodies and measurement tools that can help care providers to shout about this fantastic step towards a more sustainable business."
