LSBU selects supply chains based on sustainability and ethics considerations.
Procurement and workers' rights
Procurement practices include policies on sustainable food, uniforms and IT equipment. Find out more about sustainable procurement at LSBU.
- LSBU has joined a growing number of universities in the UK that are working to ensure the electronics they purchase are free from sweatshop labour. Affiliation to Electronics Watch enables major public sector bodies to use their market influence to drive change in their supply chains. Find out more about LSBU joining Electronics Watch.
