Social economist Monika Missalla-Steinmann
graduated from the University of Göttingen. Since 2010, after working at the
Ministry of Agriculture in Lower Saxony and the Ministry of the Environment and
Agriculture in Hesse, she has directed the 'Renewable Resources in Procurement'
project at the Agency for Renewable Resources (Fachagentur Nachwachsende Rohstoffe e.V. - FNR) - the lead partner
of the Federal Ministry for Food and Agriculture (Bundesministerium für Ernährung und Landwirtschaft - BMEL). The particular
focus here is the federal government’s procurement practice, which is to be
made more sustainable. It is based on: the government’s sustainability
strategy, the bio-economic policy strategy, the German resource efficiency
programme II, and last, but not least, current procurement law. The
public sector has a particular obligation to act as a role model and use its
market power for the procurement of sustainable products. Innovative products
made from sustainable raw materials constitute an important component of
sustainable procurement. They not only enrich a sustainably-based procurement
range but also conserve precious, and limited, fossil resources and the
environment. As public relations advisor at the FNR, Missalla-Steinmann is
focusing in the project on disseminating information and knowledge about
innovative bio-based products and their different possible applications, active
participation in and implementation of trade fairs and events, as well as comprehensive
committee work and networking. With the walk-in trade fair stand, 'The
