EU GPP case study: Sustainable procurement of office materials in Ghent (Belgium)
Addressing supplies of paper and other office materials is one of Ghent’s most recent endeavours on sustainable procurement, with a new framework contract set to begin in January 2014. By claiming or preferring sustainable products and methods, Ghent has created awareness in paper and office supplies around these topics, reaching suppliers (potential and current) and city employees. Moreover, once the contract begins, the number of deliveries of office supplies will be reduced by 85%, by reducing ordering and thus delivery frequency from daily to twice a month, or monthly. The new contract will see the City make better strategic use of its purchasing power, which will result in improvements for several of its municipal departments - both in terms of environmental sustainability, and resource efficiency.
