The aim of this opinion is to promote European legislation on circular public procurement, through convergence between the main purpose of the contract and environmental protection, greater attention to small and micro-enterprises, local production and the protection of social rights. This can be achieved by looking for and favouring solutions with a lower impact on the environment throughout their lifespan.

The upcoming German EU Council Presidency has requested an EESC opinion on "Digitalisation and Sustainability – status quo and need for action in civil society perspective".

The Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) has decided to place special emphasis on the topic of digitalisation and sustainability during Germany’s upcoming European Council Presidency in the second half of 2020. The current crisis with increasing demand for teleworking, virtual conferences and digital services highlights the need for sustainable digitalisation even more.

The EESC opinion will establish the status quo and explore the need for action from a civil society perspective to help identify options for action at European level.
