Sustainable Campus



Sustainable purchasing or procurement is all about taking environmental and social factors into account in your purchasing decisions.

Sustainable procurement is about looking at:

  • what your products are made of
  • where they came from
  • who has made them

Newcastle University's Procurement Services (University login required) provide information about:

  • our Sustainable Purchasing Policy
  • recommended products and where to purchase them
  • environmental considerations within the procurement cycle

They also provide step-by-step guides to the purchasing process, including information on whole life costing.
