The Department has implemented and embedded the policy requirements within Procurement Policy Note (PPN) 06/21, taking account of Carbon Reduction Plans in the procurement of major Government contracts within its commercial activity. The Department has applied the provisions of this PPN to relevant procurements advertised on or after 30 September 2021. Awareness sessions were delivered to commercial staff prior to the policy going live, and annually thereafter. Tender documents contain the required supplier appraisal questions and commercial guidance is available to support this process.

Quarterly compliance monitoring is undertaken, and action is taken to ensure all in scope procurements are compliant with this policy.
