Sustainable Procurement 2021 – 2024 | Dashboard

The province of Zeeland has chosen to use the sustainable development goals (SDGs) as a compass to make positive impact with its purchases.

Central to the plan is securing Sustainable Procurement, both within the organization and beyond.

The plan was therefore drawn up in collaboration with market parties, knowledge institutions, policy officers and buyers from the Province of Zeeland, RWS and Zeeland municipalities.

For each project, the ambition level is determined in advance for the SDG impact. The results are monitored via the dashboard below. 

The SDG dialogues with more than 70 stakeholders have provided very concrete input to make an impact with our procurement. That is why we have decided to repeat the dialogues annually. The dialogues inspire and connect stakeholders.
