Objective : OSL should emphasize the environmental award criteria and the specific environmental requirements in all new framework agreements and procurement.
Oslo Airport (OSL) will weight environmental protection in award criteria and set specific environmental requirements in all new framework agreements and procurement.
Both the consumption and production of materials have a significant impact on the environment. The term products and materials as used by OSL includes both products and deliveries of services and materials and chemical products.
The Government has decided that the public sector should take the lead as a responsible consumer and demand goods and services with a low environmental impact. The Government has therefore presented a special environmental policy for government procurement through an action plan with goals, priorities, instruments and measures. The Public Procurement Act also requires OSL to consider life-cycle costs and the environmental impact of the procurement during the planning of each procurement.
Environmental requirements in procurement are an important part of OSL's environmental policy and environmental objectives. It helps to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions, and provides economic benefits beyond protecting and preserving the environment.
