The Sustainability Compass provides substantial information on sustainable public procurement.
The Sustainability Compass is an evolving project. Visit us on a regular basis to find out about recently released product groups, sustainability labels or potential suppliers for certified products. Would you like to be listed as a supplier of certified products?

Sustainable procurement can help you make more cost-saving, solution-oriented and energy- and resource-efficient purchases.
Social and environmental labels can serve as a means of proof of sustainability. A list of labels that fulfil the conditions of Art. 43 2014/24/EU can be found here. If you are looking for labels based on certain social and environmental criteria, please select whether you wish to see a list of all labels or search for the label of a specific product.
The Sustainability Compass for municipalities offers practical examples for all German States (Länder): tender documents, city council decisions, directives and much more. Benefit from the experience of active municipalities.
By integrating social and environmental criteria in procurement processes, buyers can contribute to their organisation’s sustainability strategy and at the same time stimulate the market for sustainably manufactured products.
