        IN ACTION

        SPP POLICY AND STRATEGY

        CCE is working with national organisations, such as the Laboratório Nacional de Energiae Geologia (LNEG) to define environmental criteria for its tendering processes.

        Under the legal framework of public procurement in Portugal, CCE-AML has developed several aims and objectives as part of its mission for collaborative e-procurement, including:

        • Promoting increased effectiveness, efficiency, transparency of procurement

        • Reducing procurement costs through financial gains and savings

        • Aligning the centralised purchasing policy of CCC-AML and its municipalities with the overall policy of public procurement in Portugal


        DEVELOPING SPP CRITERIA

        Since July 2009, the Laboratório Nacional de Energia e Geologia (LNEG) has been working in collaboration with CCE and several public authorities to introduce sustainability criteria in tendering procedures. The criteria covered the following product groups: electric minibuses, hygiene products, bottled water, office equipment and public indoor and outdoor lighting.


        PROCUREMENT CAPACITY BUILDING

        Workshops are held to discuss energy consumption priorities in three main areas: public lighting, buildings and transport.
