The practice consists in the strategy developed by the Basque Government to integrate green public procurement into the Basque administration, adapting to the needs and demands of each moment. The final objective of this strategy is that public tenders in the Basque Country integrate environmental criteria and that all the agents involved in their deployment are taken into account in order to achieve an environmentally friendly, quality and competitive market. This strategy is led by the public company Ihobe, whose job is to boost and implement the actions necessary to achieve the objectives set. This work is being carried out with the maximum leveraging of public resources, favoring synergies, for example, with the inclusion of social clauses, gender clauses, etc. in public bidding or in green private purchases.
