Carbon footprint of London’s Local Authority Procurement

November 2010: London Councils’ Capital Ambition project has funded a groundbreaking project that has identified how to reduce the carbon footprint of London’s £8 billion public procurement. The three year project, delivered by Trucost has evaluated 90% of suppliers to London local authorities, a total of over 9,000 suppliers. 29 London Borough Councils, the GLA, City of London and London’s Fire and Emergency Planning Authority have taken part in this project and have been provided with reports that detail their spend, their most carbon-intensive suppliers and provides a modelling tool specific to the authority to that details how changes to carbon use in suppliers will impact their overall supply-chain carbon use.
