PPN 06/21 - Carbon Reduction Plan creation and training

Actions and Detail Panel


An on-line training session from Crown Commercial Service for suppliers on the creation of a Carbon Reduction Plan

About this event

In 2019, the UK became the first major economy to adopt a legal commitment to achieve ‘Net Zero’ carbon emissions by 2050.

Procurement Policy Note 06/21 was published on Gov.uk on 5th June of 2021, and went live 30th September.

This measure requires suppliers bidding for major government contracts to commit to achieving Net Zero by 2050 and publish a ‘Carbon Reduction Plan’. Suppliers who fail to make this commitment or publish their plan risk being excluded from the procurement process.

This training with Crown Commercial Service will help suppliers in the creation of a carbon reduction plan and answer any questions around this requirement.

We will cover

  • An overview of PPN06/21
  • Basics of what is needed in your CRP
  • Areas that must be covered in the plan
  • The template to be used
  • What not to do

We will present for the first half then open the floor for question from the attendees.

PPN 06/21 and associated guidance and FAQs are available here

This session will be hosted by Andrew Smith, Lead research environment and sustainability, Crown Commercial Service.
