Sustainable Procurement Tenders

The Procura+ website has now launched a new section where sustainable procurement tender examples can be downloaded and shared by everyone.

These public authority tenders from across Europe include environment and/or social criteria for different products and services. They are available as pdf documents, and also available in their local language.

Some of the tenders are:
  • cleaning products - ESPO (UK)
  • cleaning services - Diputaci√≥ de Barcelona (Spain)
  • construction equipment - Diputaci√≥ de Barcelona (Spain)
  • green electricity - Water service Belfast (Northern Ireland)
  • street lamps - Lille (France)
  • sustainable bus shelters - Barcelona (Spain)
  • filter particle for trains - Taunusbahn (Germany)
The aim is to increase the number of tender documents and create an online database for local authorities to search and to use as guidance during their purchasing activities.

We are always interested in collecting good tender examples to share with others. If you have carried out a successful tendering process including environmental and/or social criteria please email these to procurement@iclei-europe.org and we would be happy to publish them here. You can visit the current tender examples at the project website www.procuraplus.org
