As a contracting authority, you can encourage your contractors to reduce CO2 and give substance to socially responsible procurement.
By using the CO2 performance ladder in tenders, you can give companies with a CO2 Performance Ladder certificate a fictitious discount. This way, you know you are doing business with companies that are structurally working on CO2 reduction and continuous improvement.
In this clip we will show you how to implement the CO2 Performance Ladder as a procurement instrument.
The Foundation for Climate Friendly Procurement and Business (SKAO) has developed the Procurement Guide 3.1 for commissioning autorities that wish to implement the CO2 Performance Ladder in tendering procedures. The document includes various criteria and recommendations for commissioning autorities to put sustainable and socially responsible procurement to practice.
