Netherlands Government sustainable purchasing too expensive, says VVD

Wednesday 9 February 2011

The ruling right-wing Liberals VVD and alliance partner PVV want to end official policy in the Netherlands of making sure the government and all government bodies only buy sustainable products such as coffee and office furniture, it was reported yesterday.
The parties say the policy is costing 500m in administration and extra costs a year. ‘The policy is bankrupt,’ said VVD MP René Leegte. ‘Sustainable purchasing primarily means expensive.’
For example, the MP said purchasing managers insist that wood, including tropical hardwood, is certified by the FSC. But Swedish wood, which is grown for timber and has its own certification system is not permitted, Leegte said.
