Sustainable Public Procurement of School Catering Services: A Good Practice Report
This report is structured around a brief overview of the key problem areas which local authorities looking to procure more sustainable catering services find themselves faced with. For each problem area, we have put forward a range of ideas and practical solutions that have been tried by different cities and schools across Europe. More in-depth case studies look at eco-innovative approaches being taken to the procurement of school catering services in Turin (Italy), Copenhagen (Denmark), Malmö (Sweden) and East Ayrshire (UK).

A brief selection of research, reports and practical tools which may help shed more light on each topic is also included at the end of this report. For those who wish to find out about a given topic in more depth, the resource inventory provides further information on research, policies, case studies and eco-innovative solutions that are currently available on the market to provide ideas and inspiration.
