RP Case Studies

LUPC supports Members' collaborative procurement in a number of ways - through our range of professionally tendered, EU-compliant framework agreements, and a variety of added value benefits and services. Below are a number of case studies which showcase just how LUPC Membership has aided a number of projects for our Members.

Textiles is one of the areas LUPC has examined recently, focusing particularly on graduation gowns. They are generally produced in factories in China, Bangladesh, India, Vietnam, Cambodia and Turkey. Risks to human rights include modern slavery, child labour, exposure to chemicals and harmful working conditions. This case study shows how we question our suppliers.
