Strategy for public procurement

2007 – 2008
An action plan and strategy for public procurement in Sweden and how it can become more energy efficient.

On behalf of the Swedish Energy Agency, we have developed an action plan forpublic procurement of energy efficient equipment. In the Action Plan, we examinethe actions, programs and tools that best promote energy efficient public procurement in Sweden, and how they can be quickly implemented. It can be seen as a deepening and a more concrete analysis than our earlier proposal (see Energy Services Directive and Procurement). The Action Plan was developed by the Swedish Energy Agency in consultation with the Environmental Protection Agency, among others, the Competition Authority and the Environmental Management Council,and has reported to the government.
