NZ50 - Carbon Reduction Plans Required for Major Government Contracts from September 2021
From September 2021, the UK Government will require suppliers bidding for major government contracts to commit to achieving Net Zero by 2050 and publish a ‘Carbon Reduction Plan’.
In 2019, the UK became the first major economy to adopt a legal commitment to achieve ‘Net Zero’ carbon emissions by 2050. To support this, the Government Commercial Function has developed a new commercial policy measure for all central government departments and arm’s length bodies.
Further details of the latest Procurement Policy Note 06/21 and guidance for completing a Carbon Reduction Plan are available on the UK Gov website here.
The output from a recent Carbon Reduction Plan Industry Engagement Briefing held on 16 June 2021 is also available here.
