The many examples from regional, national and supra-national contexts described in this report show that considerable benefits that can be achieved through technology procurement. The report includes a set of recommendations aiming at increased and effective use of technology procurement as a means of supporting environment-friendly and energy-saving technologies in the Nordic coun-tries.




For quite some years greening of public and private procurement has been used as a way of reducing the environmental burden and supporting green products commercialisation. And for many years – and with rising strength – the notion of innovation has been a buzzword in the industrialised world as a means to cope with increased competition and globalisation. “Technology procurement” is a method of merging these two concepts into one.
