Procurement and Fairtrade

Sustainable Procurement Policy

The University's Procurement Department supports the University’s commitment to the principle of sustainability, and ensures that sustainability is a key factor in the procurement of goods and services on campus.

Sustainable Procurement Guide

This guide is designed to assist staff responsible for procuring goods and services on behalf of the university and in line with the University’s Sustainable Procurement Policy.

Sustainable Food Policy

The Sustainable Food Policy provides a clear direction for Brunel catering by increasing the availability of healthier options and serves as a means to communicate the University’s commitment to enhancing the health and welfare of the students and staff. Sustainweb, an organisation promoting food and agriculture policies and practices, has supported the writing of this policy.

Fairtrade website

Fairtrade is a strategy intended to alleviate poverty and to spread sustainable development. It aims to give better opportunities to producers and workers in developing countries who endure unacceptable working and living conditions as a result of poor market access and unfair trade rules. You'll be pleased to hear that the University achieved Fairtrade accreditation in 2010.
