Green Procurement Guide
The U·MOB project’s Guide on Green Procurement in Universities related to Sustainable Mobility is aimed to promote cooperation between universities in terms of the systematic implementation of mobility-related Green Procurement practices across Europe, and encourage universities to implement green criteria in their procurement processes related to mobility and transport.
With this 46-page guide, we want to present the strategic role of Green Procurement for Universities and the benefits it can bring, as well as to provide several case studies to demonstrate that sustainable mobility-related Green Procurement is already being successfully implemented across the EU in universities and other public authorities.
Best Practices in Green Procurement
In the framework of the U·MOB LIFE project, the consortium launched at the time a contest to award the most remarkable Green Procurement Best Practice related to Sustainable Mobility, implemented in the last years (2017-2020) at a European university campus. The aim of this contest was to boost the exchange of best practices among universities in the U·MOB network and to extend the invitation for new universities to join the network.
Following this competition, a series of best practices in green procurement have been collected as a result of the participation of various European universities belonging to our network, and which are the result of the promotion of collaboration between universities to achieve a more environmentally friendly, efficient and socially inclusive mobility system.
