There have been lots of drivers for University procurement teams to engage with sustainability recently; for some it is a Procurement Capability or Maturity Assessment and for others new legislation such as the Modern Slavery Act.
Basically, sustainability teams should be pushing at an open door with their procurement colleagues right now!
To help things along, when a University procurement team signs up to use our new supplier engagement tool we are getting in touch with their sustainability team to tip them the wink.
We are also developing guidance to help a range of different stakeholders across the institution to understand how the tool works and how to get the most from the data it generates.
