Sustainable Procurement

The Student Loans Company (SLC) fully supports the principles of sustainable procurement. This has been defined by the government’s Sustainable Procurement Task Force as:

'a process whereby organisations meet their needs for goods, service, works and utilities in a way that achieves value for money on a whole life basis in terms of generating benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society and the economy, whilst minimising damage to the environment'.

Wherever possible SLC will specify products which are made from recycled products; can be recycled or re-used; can be operated in an energy efficient manner; and cause minimal damage to the environment in their production, distribution, use and disposal & so long as the requirements for value for money and quality are met.
