Public Procurement boosts Energy Efficiency - Final Report
Communities all over the world are facing the dramatic consequences of the excessive use of natural resources and climate change. Unsustainable consumption practices lie at the heart of these problems. Sustainable procurement – spending public money responsibly on products and services that foster sustainable development – must, therefore, be a priority. Sustainable procurement means thinking carefully about what to buy: buying only what is really needed, purchasing products and services with high environmental performance, and considering the social and economic impacts of procurement.
