Sustainable procurement

If your company is on the lookout for sustainable products, check out the sustainable procurement guide at www.guidesustainableprocurement.be. This online guide catalogues high-quality, sustainable labels and environmental and social criteria.

The guide is geared primarily to public procurement buyers. It identifies sustainability criteria for around 250 products and services, which buyers can incorporate into their public procurement contracts. The criteria are based on the criteria used in other countries, stakeholder consultation and market research in Belgium.

However, the guide is not just intended for government departments: it may also be useful for companies, as a source of inspiration and criteria for their own procurement policies.
