Session Outline

The session will explore responsible procurement using Electronics Watch as an example. It will discuss the potential barriers for Higher and Further Education to embed social impacts and opportunities into their purchasing and how these might be overcome by increasing the importance of value versus cost.

As well as offering Electronics Watch as a potential solution for an important category spend, it will help sustainability professionals to identify practical steps to recognise and embed social value within their organisation’s purchasing decisions.
