Where can I find sustainable public procurement?

There are FSC-certified forests in 81 countries worldwide

In 2014, this meant that 16.6 per cent of all industrial wood harvested globally came from FSC-certified forests. This timber goes to companies in more than 115 countries for processing and trade, so purchasing FSC-certified products is possible on all continents.

Several national offices have published information to assist public procurers in different languages, often also with specific national elements. Select from the list below to view more information:
