Procurement is one of our biggest contributors to our scope 3 emissions, as is the case for many organisations.

Our Procurement team are currently working on a refreshed Sustainable Procurement Strategy and Policy, with the intent to roll out in 2024. A refreshed strategy and policy will help change our procurement approach to a more sustainable footing, improve our skills and ways of working.

Alongside the strategy and policy, we will be providing skills, training, and support tools to the those who make purchasing decisions both centrally and across Imperial.
