The way we procure items and spend our money can make a big difference to improving the sustainability of our organisation, with wider impacts on our supply chain.
We will demonstrate success by:
measuring and increasing sustainable procurement levels.
developing an action plan to achieve the outcomes of the procurement strategy for 2017-18.
We will deliver sustainable procurement by identifying a performance baseline against a number of indicators arising from our new procurement strategy, and implementing an action plan to achieve its outcomes.
We also want to embed sustainability and social value into University procurement processes to achieve a recognised ethical procurement accreditation.
