World Sustainable Contracting Day

Organisation: World CC. Location: Online

World Sustainable Contracting Day (#WSCD) is an annual, one-day global event dedicated to advancing sustainability within commercial and contracting practices. Now in its 3rd year, WSCD brings together professionals, thought leaders, and experts to address the challenges and opportunities, and provide practical real-world guidance in sustainable contracting.

Join us for our session showcasing how Lithuania is implementing open and green procurement.

Top tips on how Lithuania fast-tracked green procurement
Lithuania embarked on an ambitious public procurement reform in 2021 to transition from 5% to 100% green procurement by 2023. This involved careful planning, capacity building for public buyers, and data-driven monitoring. By December 2023, green procurement uptake reached 94% by value and 93% by total procedures. The focus now shifts to measuring tangible outcomes, such as reducing the country’s carbon footprint, with collaborations underway to develop methodologies for CO2 emissions impact assessment in high-carbon sectors and specific products.
