The tool is designed to support and develop the supply chain, which is crucial to embedding sustainability in the procurement process.

The tool also includes content that specifically addresses the requirements of the Modern Slavery Act to help procurement professionals meet their disclosure obligation.

We now have 47 universities signed up as tool providers with 4,500 suppliers registered and creating action plans.

As a supplier of a large number of universities we have also created our own NETpositive Futures Action Plan using the Tool. Click on the image below to see the actions we have committed to:

The consortia/universities are able to interrogate the data that is generated to understand not only how their suppliers are making progress in relation to sustainability but also to better understand their needs.
