University scores top marks for sustainable procurement  

The University of Manchester has achieved Level 5 – the highest possible rating – in the Government’s flexible framework for sustainable procurement.

The University is the first in the country to have its self-assessment independently verified, with Manchester’s practices checked by peer experts in their field from both procurement and an international sustainability background.

The rating is recognition of practices, documentation, supply chain engagement, environmental impact as well as supporting large and small business at the University. This work has been widely emulated across the HE sector, with the Procurement Team regularly asked for their advice and input by other organisations.
