The main objective of this project is to benchmark the existing use of sustainable materials in the CIty of Vancouver's  internal operations and identify areas for improvement. Internal and external procurement processes were mapped for three engineering materials (asphalt, concrete and aggregate). In addition, existing requirements in procurement and reports pertaining to sustainability were documented and five improvement areas were identified.
