Carbon footprint and raw material requirement of public procurement and household consumption in Finland
The aim of the research was to analyse the carbon footprint (i.e. life-cycle greenhouse gas emissions) and raw material requirements (RMR) for public procurement and household consumption. The main
method used was the environmentally extended input-output model ENVIMAT, supplemented with statistics on public procurement.

City of Rotterdam - ZERO EMISSION DELIVERY OF CRAFTSMEN SERVICE CONTRACTS THROUGH THE ECOSTARS SCHEME
Rotterdam has identified the transportation of workmen and supplies in carrying out maintenance activities for buildings owned by the city (e.g. painting, cleaning, plumbing, etc.) as a priority area for promoting zero emission delivery in the city. This sector was identified as having the second largest transportation emissions footprint within the city, following a mapping exercise carried out in BuyZET

City of Rotterdam - Zero Emission Transport in Construction Material Procurement
A shared service department of the municipality dedicated to materials supplies coordinates the logistics in order to optimize load factors, e.g. through combining material requests from different projects in the city. The vast majority of construction materials are delivered on-site in trailers of 30-40 tonnes. From our CO2 transportation footprint analysis, it appeared that over 95% of total emissions caused by the transportation of purchased goods could be allocated to construction materials.

Measuring carbon dioxide emissions in Turin
This case study reports the example of Turin's procurement of school catering. To gain a better understand of what levels of greenhouse gas emissions were produced at different stags of the food procurement, a detailed study was commissioned from the University of Turin to look into the carbon footprint of the catering system in more depth.

InnProBio factsheet: Sustainability of bio-based products
This factsheet contains detailed information about feedstocks, the end-of-life of bio-based products, and how to measure environmental impacts using Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) and Product Carbon Footprint (PCF). There is also a section on certifications and labels that can help public procurers to define their requirements regarding bio-based products in their public tenders.
