LUPC works in partnership with organisations such as BHRE, HEPA, Electronics Watch and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation to ensure we can provide the best possible support for our members in their responsible procurement activity.
LUPC and SUPC recently announced their new, collaborative Responsible Procurement Group (RPG). This partnership allows greater visibility to projects being undertaken throughout our combined membership and strengthens relationships between members.
Additionally, LUPC works with other UKUPC colleagues as part of a formal Responsible Procurement Network. The network, established in late 2020, meet monthly and work towards achieving a consistent approach to responsible procurement across the consortia nationally. A glossary of terms has recently been published and further resources and guidance are planned for regular release over the next 12 months.
LUPC’s focus will always be to share best practice and help those interested by supporting the development of practical advice, guidance, and conversation on important and relevant subjects.
