Sustainability in Construction Purchasing
The aim is, on the one hand, to study which structures for collaboration exist in terms of sustainability considerations between sectors and actors.
On the other hand the objective is to study which institutional logics permeate the collaborative structures of the public purchasing process in particular and the social planning process in general.
What do the logics entail? How they relate to (e.g. enable or hinder) environmental and social considerations and how do they relate to each other?
By studying the dynamics between public and private sectors in the purchasing process concerning sustainability considerations, the researchers hope to identify and analyze the actual decision-making and the incentives used to integrate both environmental and social considerations.
