The Climate Friendly Procurement & Business Foundation (SKAO) has set up a network to facilitate contracting authorities when using the CO2 Performance Ladder. The Network's idea is that contracting authorities learn from each other and inspire each other about the possibilities of using the Ladder as a procurement instrument.
The Procurement Network focuses on different levels of experience. During meetings, examples from practice are interspersed with substantive teaching material about, among other things, Handbook 3.1 and climate-oriented purchasing. Members of the Procurement Network receive a newsletter with articles relevant to them, can follow training courses free of charge, participate in the network meeting, use the helpdesk and join a LinkedIn group to share knowledge about tendering with the CO2 Performance Ladder.
The first online networking event has since taken place where knowledge and experience from practice was shared and an explanation was given about Handbook 3.1. Monique Bollen, Network Procurement Project Manager: 'Thanks to the Network, not everyone has to invent the wheel themselves. This improves the quality of tendering with the Ladder and inspires people to use the Ladder in all kinds of tenders: the CO2 Performance Ladder is extremely versatile.'
All contracting authorities such as governments, utility companies, public transport and ports and airports are invited to join the Network Procurement CO2 Performance Ladder. This is free for organizations that are self-certified on the Ladder, other organizations pay a small contribution. Read more about the conditions or go directly to the registration form.
