  6. 6. Key Messaging The City of Mississauga has substantial buying power and we are using that influence to improve the social and environmental impacts of our procurement with transparency and accountability. This is not a new way of procuring; sustainability will simply be another factor – like price, quality, and service – that the City will use to obtain best value when purchasing goods and services. Sustainable procurement will help us to achieve the objectives of the Strategic Plan and the Living Green Master Plan. Full implementation of the Policy will take up to three years.
