Abstract [en]

In today's society it is clear that the accelerating climate change comes from human activities and in particular, emissions from both traffic and industry. It has become increasingly important to defend a sustainable society and there is therefore a great need to constantly develop and secure the necessary resources. Due to this, sustainability requirements in public procurement are an important part of triggering companies to engage in sustainable development.The purpose of this study is to review how public procurement can contribute to a sustainable society as well as investigate what municipal companies can do to meet future sustainability requirements. The study is based on a qualitative empirical case study. It has been used both primary and secondary data to gather reliable theory and empirical data. The empirical data was collected through interviews and documentary review. The theoretical part of the study was collected through literature, compilations of earlier publications, texts and documents. The result shows that sustainability requirements currently imposed on public procurement are something that is constantly being developed. These requirements include requirements for systematic environmental work, creditworthy companies and contractual wages. The conclusions that can be drawn are that public procurement can contribute to a sustainable society by setting sustainable requirements, thus making companies compelled to comply with these requirements. Furthermore, it has been found that companies should, among other things, review the follow-up and conduct more supplier meetings to contribute to a sustainable society. A more open and well-functioned dialogue between the company and the supplier should also be undertaken as to formulate better sustainability requirements.
