Green procurement forms a pillar for ever more municipalities seeking to take climate action. Local authorities with green public procurement strategies favour goods, services and works with reduced environmental impacts throughout their life cycles.

To support them in this task, a new guide on incorporating green public procurement into municipal planning has been published in the framework of the EU-funded Green ProcA project. The guide is especially tailored to municipalities elaborating their Sustainable Energy Action Plans as required by the Covenant of Mayors.  

Entitled “Green Public Procurement in Sustainable Energy Action Plans”, the guide leads municipalities and local governments through the various phases of SEAP development. It offers a theoretical background on green public procurement while providing the practical information necessary to a successful incorporation into municipal planning. The guide also offers tips, practical advice and best practice examples.
