Green Procurement Workshop Presentation on Tendering Criteria for packaging presented by Danish Refugee Council   

As part of the Joint Initiative for Sustainable Humanitarian Packaging Waste Management, 5 organisations (DRC, Save the Children, HCR, ICRC, BHA) have been working on developing sustainability criteria for packaging which can be used by organisations when writing tender contract. These 25 criteria look at the composition, type, size of packaging and sub packaging as well as issues such as after use & transport.  During this session of the workshop, DRC provided an overview of the tendering criteria guide and provide users with guidance on the usage in field settings.  The objective of this session was to collect initial feedback from humanitarian partners regarding the criteria list and the applicability in various field locations.  You can read more about the discussion outcomes on the Note for the Record on the WREC information portal.
