OGC looks to encourage sustainable practices across government, supporting environmental, social and economic sustainability.  Within this it has set itself the goal of supporting the Government objective of becoming one of the EU leaders in sustainable procurement by the end of 2009; and of achieving ambitious forward targets for sustainable operations on the government estate. The Centre of Expertise in Sustainable Procurement (CESP) was established in 2008 along with a Chief Sustainability Officer to provide leadership focusing on environmental sustainability across government.   The team works with key stakeholders to share information and experience to drive through the changes needed to meet these commitments. Other parts of the OGC also play a key role, including Estates and Procurement.
