Public procurers and large buyers have a strong impact on their overall energy consumption with their purchase decisions. By having a green purchasing practice in place, the buyers have the power to shape the market by requiring energy efficient products in their procurement. Procurers may find it challenging to define the criteria for energy efficient products.
To facilitate this task Topten.la has developed a series of procurement guidelines for various product categories that are straightforward and easy to use. The criteria can simply be copied into the tender and guidance on how to verify the products is provided as well. In addition, on the national Topten-sites a preview of products complying with the criteria of the tender is available.
All guidelines are available on Topten’s dedicated page for professional buyers www.topten.la/pro.
