From 1 March 2024 and the Minimum Environmental Criteria published by the MA.S.E. in the Official Gazette from 2 December 2023 will be operational.

A missing piece in the project of the Ministry of the Environment aimed at accompanying Public Institutions towards more conscious and sustainable choices.

Calls for tenders and concessions, procurement code and CAM

This document, in order to achieve the objectives defined in the context of the Action Plan for the environmental sustainability of public administration consumption adopted pursuant to Article 1, paragraphs 1126 and 1127 of Law no. 296/2006 by decree of the Minister of the Environment, Land and Sea in agreement with the Minister of Economic Development and Economy and Finance of 11 April 2008,  it aims to contain the environmental impacts related to catering services through the installation of food and beverage vending machines, refreshment services (bars) and the service of serving sandwiches and similar products and, to this end, establishes the Minimum Environmental Criteria. In order to favor the consumption of mains water over the consumption of bottled mineral water, whenever technically possible and appropriate, the Minimum Environmental Criteria are defined for additional categories of green procurement, i.e. the supply, installation and operation of water houses, taking into account that works contracts for the construction of mains water supply points for drinking water in indoor or outdoor environments are also (installation of drinking fountains with taps, drinking bottles, etc.) are green contracts by their very nature.

But at the same time, the Procurement Code does not allow non-accredited Contracting Authorities (SA for short) (Article 62 of 36/2023) to publish notices for the services in question. A cleaver that affects the (SA) with low administrative staff. Will it be intentional? You don’t have to know. What is certain is that the risk of seeing concession catering services disappear from the social fabric is very high, in this case all educational institutes, from comprehensive to high schools.

On the merits of the last point, however, ANAC has provided that accredited SAS can publish them on their behalf. Given the unforeseen workload that would be added to you, our company offers its own specialist services to support you.
