What is a Carbon Reduction Plan, and do I need one?

Suppliers bidding for major government contracts may have to demonstrate their commitment to achieving ‘Net Zero’ by including a Carbon Reduction Plan within their bids.

How does the National Procurement Policy Statement (NPPS) affect suppliers?

A greater focus is being put on how public spending can better support economic growth, Covid-19 recovery and net zero carbon emissions. We recommend suppliers familiarise themselves with these priorities to support future bids.
