The University of Edinburgh was affiliated to the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC) from 2012 to 2017. The WRC is a US-based organisation that aims to monitor working conditions in garment factories that produce university-branded apparel and other garments, on behalf of its higher education institution members. From 2017, the University took the decision to focus on working with UK partners to develop further collaboration on socially responsible garment purchasing, in a manner that reflects the UK and European public procurement context.
