The market is constantly in movement. Customers frequently demand that more sustainable solutions are procured. This can be achieved by including environmental aspects of procurement in addition to financial cost. Customers are challenging the market to be more sustainable and innovate in this way. The demand for sustainability also supports the CO2-reduction goals and the circular economy.
These procurement/tender guidelines show how you can buy sustainably, which factors to consider and what role the circularity index and environmental costs can play. We delve deeper into our applied methodology and different levels of procurement (product or project). Finally, we show how INSIDE/INSIDE can help in procurement and give an overview of prevalent and useful documents.
These guidelines have not been translated (yet) but are available in Dutch.
