Public Procurement of Zero-Emission Construction Sites - Lessons learned from the Big Buyers Initiative working group
Through the Big Buyers Initiative, a working group on Zero-Emission Construction Sites brings together the cities of Amsterdam, Brussels, Budapest, Copenhagen, Helsinki, Lisbon, Oslo, Trondheim and Vienna to promote zero-emission construction sites, focusing on alternatives to traditionally diesel-driven non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) used to carry out construction works (such as diggers, excavators, wheel loaders, etc.).
The group began collaborating in April 2019, and herein shares key takeaways from a year and a half of capacity building, market dialogues, and learning-by-doing through pilot procurements with fossil- and emission-free components.

Joint Baltic Sea Region Report for Sustainable Public Procurement and Catering Services
This report presents the results of the StratKIT mapping of PPCS which discloses the national legal framework and innovative approaches, organisational and business structures and operational ‘shop floor' performance regarding the provision of the public meal. As the current practices of PPCS are closely related to the supranational policy framework, this is also briefly reflected with the best practices both from within and outside the EU. The information enables the analysis of the green or sustainable features as performed by country-specific PPCS. These results help the project partners to understand and identify the opportunities for sustainable developments by PPCS.
