ENSIE Responsible Public Procurement Database

You’ll find on this map best practices and examples of public authorities that used reserved contracts (art. 20) and social considerations (art.42 Technical specifications, art.67 Contract award criteria and art.70 Conditions for performance of contracts) of the EU Directive 2014/24/EU for WISEs. The objective of this map is to showcase a selected number of good practices across Europe, highlight exemplary cities and inspire others to adopt a responsible consumption behaviour when planning public spendings.

Currently, ENSIE is involved in two projects that boost the development of the database which will have new good practices available soon.

1. Buy WISEly: Buy WISEly overall aims at enabling work integration social enterprises (WISEs) and mainstream businesses (MBs) in involved countries to design, foster and implement transactional partnerships, including trade relationships, for sustainable buy social B2B market to respond to the several identified needs and address current shortages of the labour market by using a holistic approach.

2. Consommer malin, consommer responsable (financed by the Belgian "Loterie Nationale"): The objectives of this project are to promote partnerships between WISEs, traditional companies and public institutions as well as to raise awareness among traditional companies and public institutions in Wallonia and the Brussels-Capital Region about responsible consumption through work integration social enterprises.
