Low Carbon Procurement

This suite of Guidance Documents has been developed as part of the CLASP Low Carbon Procurement Project which was undertaken in the first six months of 2011. 

Contents include: an overview of the rationale and business case for sustainable procurement; a useful summary of the key steps to take when considering ‘low carbon’ products and services; and ‘good practice’ guides for a number of category areas.
