UK GOVERNMENT NET ZERO PPN 06/21

Public Procurement Policy 06/21

In September 2021, the Procurement Policy Note 06/21  (PPN 06/21) came into effect. It requires all suppliers who bid for government contracts, with a total value exceeding £5m, to demonstrate that they are taking action to reduce their carbon emissions, in line with UK 2050 Net Zero targets. 

PPN 06/21 applies to suppliers to central government, executive agencies and their non-departmental public bodies. Whilst the measures set out in PPN 06/21 will only apply to major government contracts, it signposts the general direction in which the UK government is travelling as it aims to  decarbonise the public sector by 2050. 

MEETING THE PPN 06/21 CRITERIA

PPN 06/21 Carbon Reduction Plan

The carbon reduction plan should be developed using the Government approved templateThe plan should be signed off by your organisation’s senior leadership within the 12 months preceding the commencement of the procurement, accessible via your company website, and updated at least annually. 

Suppliers may be excluded from applying for government contracts for failing to achieve compliance with the selection criteria, such as failing to make an organisational commitment to reaching Net Zero, disclosing emissions, or showing an evidenced strategy to reduce emissions.

ACT NOW

PPN 06/21 Deadline

You will need be prepared to be assessed against the PNN criteria when bidding for contracts advertised on or after 30 September 2021.

As gathering the data required to complete baseline and current emissions can take from a few days to a few weeks (depending on the complexity of supply chains), companies who anticipate bidding for contracts that fall under the PPN 06/21 should start to prepare now.
