About the guide
The National Waste Policy: Less waste, more resources contains strategies to improve the use of resources in Australia. One such strategy is for all governments to embody and promote sustainable procurement principles and practices within their own operations (Strategy 2).
The Guide for sustainable procurement of services contains more detailed information about the issues to consider when procuring services, such as financial, best practice performance criteria that can be used in approaches to market and possible contract requirements. Other specific product and service guides are expected to be published throughout 2013.
