The University is a major purchaser locally, nationally and internationally spending over £300 million per year on goods, services and works. We recognise that what we spend and how we spend it has a significant impact both within the University and in the wider world.

Responsible purchasing is led by the University’s Procurement Team. Visit their website for guidance on how to procure sustainably and responsibly. The UK Universities Purchasing Consortia has produced a responsible purchasing glossary to help explain technical terms.

Responsible purchasing is one of six themes in 10,000 Actions. Visit 10,000 Actions to learn more and to create your responsible purchasing action plan.
