Findings from BDO report: What do companies want from the municipalities?

In this video, Line Begby, manager advisor at BDO, presents central findings from a BDO report, on what companies wants from municipalities: a large majority finds it important that municipalities take an active role in supporting the sustainable transition, but only a minority finds that the municipalities already do so. When it comes to procurements, the companies can see a shift in the municipalities’ focus on sustainability, however they see that the municipalities do not exploit their full potential of being a driving force for sustainable development. The companies experience demands on sustainability mostly form customers and other partners, not the municipalities. Municipalities still prioritize the price. The smaller companies want demands on quality and sustainability but are concerned that demands of documentation favors the bigger companies.
