PSE365: Reaching Net Zero Through Sustainable Procurement

With the UK Government committing to Net Zero by 2050, embedding environmental, economic and social aspects of sustainability into public sector procurement policies, strategies, process and practices is paramount to reaching net zero targets. 

In 2021, the UK Government implemented new ‘Green Bidding Rules’ for government contracts worth more than £5m a year. All those bidding must commit to achieving net zero emissions by 2050, making the UK the first country in the world to put such a measure in place.

In this panel discussion gain insight into what leaders need to navigate to embed sustainability into their procurement process, how the public sector can learn from other industries to support net zero through procurement strategy and policies, and what the new rules mean for the sector.

Making up the panel were:

  • Preeya Bailie, Director of Procurement Transformation and Commercial Delivery, NHS England & NHS Improvement
  • David Lawson, Chief Procurement Officer, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
  • David Mosey PhD, Professor of Law, Centre of Construction Law & Dispute Resolution, Kings College London

The panel discussion is available to watch on demand here and YouTube
