Towards Zero Carbon Catering
Procurement Compact
• “Progressively lower
carbon catering goods
and services”
• Embedded carbon –
beyond operational
carbon
• Reflected in evaluation
criteria
• Make adjustments to
the procurement
process
• Enable differentiation on
factors other than price
 Using public (and private sector) procurement to
stimulate innovation in the economy and improve public
services
 This usually means changing the way we approach
procurement

Innovation procurement?
– Buying goods and services in a way that stimulates
the supply chain to invest in developing better and
more innovative goods and services to meet the
unmet needs of an organisation
Why innovation procurement approach?
 Existing solutions and ‘business as usual approaches’ will not
deliver what is needed
– We need new and innovative solutions - or we will fail
 Innovation leaders - both public sector and supply chain need to set new standards
 The Public Sector approach to procurement needs to be better at
stimulating, encouraging and enabling innovation.
 The tool developed in the UK is Forward Commitment
Procurement
 Creating new solutions to deliver better public services
and support competitiveness of European economy.

The buyer-supplier paradox
 Suppliers respond to customer demand; Customers tend to buy
what is available – rather than asking for what they need……….this
leads to ‘more of the same’ and stifles innovation
 In practice?
– Cross-departmental engagement in the
procurement process
– Identify ‘unmet needs’ - ask for what is needed
not what is available
– Market engagement and consultation on the
specification and approach
– Outcome based specifications
– Pro-innovation procurement strategies
– Use of competitive dialogue, forward
commitment, whole life costing, pilots within
procurement process,
– Buyers Group
– develop wider markets in UK and Europe
– Whole-life costing / Total cost of ownership
 What we ask of the supply chain
– To respond to the unmet needs in a creative and innovative way
– Offer tomorrow’s not just today’s solutions
– seek out new solutions
– stimulate new solutions in the supply chain
– ask about opportunities for trialling and piloting
– Build in progressive innovation and improvement
 Clarifications
– Carbon reduction is not the same as environmental sustainability
– Embedded / embodied carbon not just operational
– Not convinced about Carbon Off-Setting
– Innovation low carbon does not mean more expensive
– the case of prison mattresses
– carbon reduction at Anglian Water

Product Portfolio Footprinting for your
supply chain
“The key to success was to begin by
asking for what was needed – not what
we thought was available or affordable.
The results have exceeded all
expectations. FCP really works”.
John Cartwright, Director of Estates and
Facilities, Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust.
