BuyZET, coordinated by ICLEI, aims to understand and optimize the impact of public procurement activities on transport patterns in cities – and to find innovative and sustainable delivery solutions for goods and services, which can help to address these challenges. The goals of the project are to boost demand for zero emission vehicles (ZEVs) and other zero emission urban delivery solutions on the European market, and to develop procurement plans to achieve zero emission urban delivery of goods and services to the public sector. To achieve the project goals, participating cities identified the areas of procurement spend with the biggest influence on the movement of goods and services. They developed plans for innovative zero emission procurement activities for these high priority areas in co-operation with key market actors and other stakeholders. ICLEI provided support for the cities in these activities, as well as established cross-border networking and experience exchange between consortium partners, other European cities, and further stakeholders. The project also resulted in a series of recommendations for both public authorities and national and European policy makers in support of zero emission delivery of goods and services.
