The platform makes it easy for suppliers to make the impact concrete.
By having this validated by an expert, we have reliable data. With the project impact website I can easily show colleagues, other buyers and suppliers what we have achieved.
We have made the added value for people and the environment visible and made the positive SDG impact measurable for the biobased products used at the Tractaatweg.
The platform offers tools for translating SDG for buyers, but also for market parties. I notice the need for making the positive impact visible for buyers.
By introducing metrics for products and projects, the impact is specifically linked to the relevant SDGs.
In this way, we as the Province of Zeeland can use our purchases to show which SDGs we contribute to and indirect contribution to policy objectives of our Province.
The platform makes sustainable procurement concrete and tangible.
For the European tender for Furniture the platform gave insight in the markt offerings and translate the circular ambition in criteria for the tender documents. We selected the minimum requirements and the metrics for circularity of products.
The Platform has given us insight into what is possible and what harmonized indicators are available.
As the Province of Zeeland we would like to set a good example with our procurement.
Personally, I also think it is very important to make a positive impact on the environment, and thus contribute to the preservation of our earth. That is why I am happy with this platform that empowers me.
Through this platform, both governments and suppliers can inform, activate and mainly inspire each other.
