Green Public Procurement: Useful tips now available on the European Commission’s website
Public authorities are one of the main consumers in the EU – every year they spend about €2 trillion on goods and services. Re-allocating this purchasing power to low-consumption products via Green Public Procurement (GPP) represents a tremendous opportunity for local authorities to not only promote sustainable production and consumption patterns in their communities but to demonstrate a firm commitment to the low-carbon transition at the European level.

It is behind this logic that the Directorate-General for Environment has launched a dedicated webpage to disseminate information and raise awareness of GPP among all interested stakeholders. Covenant Signatories are thus welcome to visit this knowledge platform, which provides theoretical information on how to integrate GPP in public procurement as well as concrete examples consolidated in a best practice brochure.

To stay informed on GPP activities, sign up for news alerts.
