Session Outline

This session considered opportunities to deliver sustainability through procurement, and changes to the public procurement legislation to help enable this. The workshop also featured a demonstration of the Sustain supply chain web portal.


EAUC-Scotland held their third conference on the 17th November 2015, sharing examples, ideas and opportunities for Colleges and Universities working to develop and promote sustainability within their institution.

The conference theme, A Shared Responsibility, highlighted that for effective change sustainability action is not only needed by estates teams, but also academic and support staff, senior management and students, and requires engagement with local and national partners and other further and higher education institutions.
