The program must set out objectives, measures and indicators which help to determine the success of the measures to reduce the quantities of waste and dangerous substances being generated. It must also present an evaluation of measures that have already been implemented. According to th e Waste Directive, the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is responsible for drawing up the Swedish program, which will then become Sweden's waste prevention program. The aim of the program is to guide and inspire Swedish individuals and organizations to implement waste prevention measures so that less waste is generated and so that products contain no dangerous substances. In order to achieve these objectives, environmentally compatible procurement of goods, services and construction contracts have been identified as an important instrument. The aim of imposing requirements concerning waste prevention measures in connection with the procurement of goods, services and construction contracts is to reduce the burden on the environment and contribute to sustainable patterns of consumption and production. EPA has carried out a questionnaire-based survey with the aim of investigating how government agencies, municipal authorities, county councils, county council-owned companies and municipal companies are working on requirements concerning waste prevention measures in connection with the procurement of goods, services and construction contracts. This report describes the result from the survey and the need of measures for moving forward in this issue. - - - Beställtryck, ej rabatt.
