About PPN 06/21

Procurement Policy Note (PPN) 06/21 applies to all central government departments, their Executive Agencies and non-departmental public bodies in conducting procurement procedures regulated by the Public Contracts Regulations 2015.

Effective since 30th September 2021, affected organisations have had to apply PPN 06/21 when procuring goods or services where the contract value might reach or exceed £5 million per annum and above (excluding VAT).

What emissions must be reported within PPN 06/21?

The Greenhouse Gas Protocol breaks emissions sources down into three categories or Scopes:

Scope 1 emissions are direct greenhouse gas emissions that occur from sources that are controlled or owned by the reporting organization. e.g., emissions associated with fuel combustion in boilers, furnaces, vehicles.
Scope 2 emissions are indirect greenhouse gas emissions associated with the purchase of electricity, steam, heat, or cooling. They are accounted for by the reporting organization as they are a result of the organization’s energy use.
Scope 3 emissions include all sources not within an organization’s scope 1 and 2 boundary. Scope 3 emissions often represent most (generally, 80%) of an organisation’s total greenhouse gas emissions.
However, there are fifteen categories of Scope 3 emissions, and they include emissions both upstream and downstream of your activities.

The result is that you must report for Scope 1, Scope 2, and a minimum of five of the fifteen Scope 3 emissions, the latter including: business travel, employee commuting, teleworking, waste generated in operations, upstream transportation and distribution, and downstream transportation and distribution.

Our experts will be pleased to explore these criteria with you in greater depth.

What is the Carbon Reduction Plan?

Your documentation will be assessed not only for the quality of your emissions reporting, but also for your published Carbon Reduction Plan which:

  • is required to be published on your website,
  • has been updated and signed-off by an appropriate level of management within the preceding twelve months,
  • stipulates your commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2050 (at the latest),
  • details your Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions,
  • details the environmental management measures which will be applied to fulfil the delivery of the contract.

Our experts will be pleased to explore these criteria with you in greater depth.
