The Community Charter
In modern-day society, we all need to recognise the importance of running our businesses in a responsible manner. Companies are increasingly being asked, as part of formal tender processes, to demonstrate what they are doing in terms of their environmental practices and community support. Indeed, some of our own contracts already include community benefit clauses that are very much part of the scoring system and are used when assessing formal tenders.
We recognise that most companies do operate in a responsible manner. The aim of this Community Charter is to ask all
potential suppliers to Leeds City Council, and those already in receipt of a contract, to look at providing some added benefit to the local community here in Leeds. Leeds City Council is already working in partnership with two Leeds-based not-for-profit organisations that can help you in this important area.
