Publication Procurement Guide Version 3.0
This Guide is focused on contracting authorities (public ordering party) who want to focus on sustainable purchasing and are considering applying the MEAT Criterion CO2 Performance Ladder in tenders under MEAT (Most Economically Advantageous Tender). The described method can also be used by other ordering parties (special sector companies, private ordering parties).
It is intended to inform ordering parties who (want to) procure with the MEAT Criterion CO2 Performance Ladder about the application and formulation of the MEAT Criterion CO2 Performance Ladder.
Procurment Guide CO2 Performance Ladder
For the further development of the CO2 Performance Ladder, it is of great importance that the application of the MEAT Criterion in tenders occurs in a careful manner. Ordering parties have a joint interest in a strong certificate and a correct, uniform application of the MEAT Criterion CO2 Performance Ladder in tenders. This is why SKAO (Stichting Klimaatvriendelijk Aanbesteden en Ondernemen), the manager and owner of the CO2 Performance Ladder, has had this document compiled by a Commission consisting of tender experts from ordering parties and social organisations.
