The choice of the "best offer" to the benefit of the circular economy - a webinar

Start/End date
Event type

Green public procurement (PP) represents 10% of France's GDP and is one of the major drivers of the green transition. Beyond this vital role of public authorities, the business volumes directly impact the economic offer and supplier practices.

Recent PP reforms in France and Europe offer buyers new opportunities and reaffirm the incentive role of PP in the circular economy (CE). In some cases, qualitative criteria, such as environmental or social aspects ("best-selling offer"), are mandatory to award a contract.
