Loughborough University recognises its responsibility to carry out its procurement activities in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Sustainable procurement is about incorporating sustainability principles into procurement decisions by taking into account the environmental and social factors whilst still obtaining value for money.
Whilst the purchasing strategy is being reviewed we are looking at encouraging colleagues at the university to think about what they are purchasing and the impact it has on the environment.
Initially we have focussed on subjects which the user can easily have an impact on, and have provided some simple tips for being a little more sustainable.
We have also provided some information about the progress the university is making on other areas of procurement.
