About Sustain and APUC

APUC is the Centre of Procurement Expertise for Universities and Colleges in Scotland, providing collaborative framework agreements for the sector to use and guidance on best practise.

In late 2012 we formed a working group to develop a means of better understanding and developing the sustainability practises of our supply chain. Our working group consisted of procurement and sustainability professionals from across the sector together with student representatives from key groups including NUS and P&P. Together we developed a Supply Chain Code of Conduct which addressed our values and concerns.

We work in collaboration with partner consortia organisations across the UK, ensuring institutions across the UK are involved. This portal will be open to all UK sector consortia and their member institutions to use, ensuring it is a fully UK wide sustainability compliance database.
