Strategic partners

The Foundation for Climate Friendly Procurement and Business (SKAO), together with the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD), Utrecht University, CO2-Logic and ICLEI Europe, will support European countries in implementing the CO2 Performance Ladder in Europe over the next two years. This roll-out of the CO2 Performance Ladder is supported by the IKEA Foundation


Our European expansion is based on the latest research into the feasibility of using the Ladder across 10 European countries (conducted by IISD). That research concludes that the tool can be implemented in a range of different contexts, and that the CO2PL stands out for its track record of use in public procurement, its proven carbon mitigation impacts, and its third-party verification system.

Please get in touch with us at [email protected] if you are interested to be involved in any of those countries, or in any more information.
