Fair sustainable procurement

In Germany, around one in six euros is spent by the public sector (federal, state and local authorities). With this procurement volume of over €350 billion per year – or around 13% of the gross domestic product – the public sector has a decisive share in the demand for sustainable products and services. Slightly more than half of this expenditure is accounted for by municipal institutions. The switch to fair sustainable procurement holds great potential here.
