Sustainability and circularity

This is the 4th update of the UITP Tender Structure Document, intended to streamline and ease the tender process of vehicles for bus operators, authorities, and manufacturers.

This update aims to support the increasing concern and will of the bus industry in addressing the sustainability, circularity, and social responsibility component of their fleet from a cradle-to-grave perspective.
