Profs. Caranta, Andhov and Janssen presented their study on mandatory sustainability requirements in public procurement at The Greens/EFA of the European Parliament

On 10 January, EPLG Members Roberto Caranta, Marta Andhov and Willem A. Janssen, together with the colleague Olga Martin-Ortega, presented their final report on ‘How to drive Sustainable Public Procurement forward in the European Union?’ at The Greens/EFA of the European Parliament.

They discussed the main findings of their analysis of the legislative development from ‘how to buy’ to ‘what to buy’ in current and future EU legislative initiatives.

The report will be published in due course. Meanwhile, an edited volume on this topic is due to be published this year, namely W.A. Janssen, R. Caranta (eds.), Mandatory Sustainability Requirements in EU Public Procurement Law: Reflections on a Paradigm Shift, Bloomsbury Hart, forthcoming 2023.
