The project will lead to promoting sustainable public procurement among selected public institutions in Poland: municipalities and regional local administration, universities and main ministries.

Our activities will cover five big Polish cities: Warsaw, Poznań, Wrocław, Kraków and Katowice. During a period of 18 months, implementation of social clauses and environmental criteria by selected institutions will be closely monitored.

Sustainable public procurement is an important instrument to promote sustainable development by linking economic, social and environmental aspects. It is rarely used in Poland and remains outside the main scope of activities of the NGO sector. A process of local dialogue on the issue including representatives of public, private and social sectors will be organized.

Partnership with ETI – Ethical Trade Initative Norway will provide a platform for exchange of experiences with Norway – the world leader in sustainable public procurement.

The project is supported by EEA Grants.
