GP: GreenLabelsPurchase – making a greener procurement - Regional PDF Print E-mail

Short description

GreenLabelsThis project will promote the increased use of energy labels in the procurement process of public authorities, the tertiary sector, industry and SMEs.
The project partners will
• Increase awareness and knowledge concerning energy labels as a simplifying instrument in public and private procurement departments
• Develop and spread standardised tools to support a wider distribution of energy related “greener” procurement procedures
• Identify the main barriers to energy related “greener” procurement and organise specific actions to overcome them
• Use energy related “greener” procurement pilot projects as the first step for comprehensive green procurement, and, thus, support of national, regional and European wide green procurement initiatives
A large-scale promotional campaign will enhance its impact through mailings, individual consultations, trainings, internet portals, press releases, expert articles, presentations, workshops and conferences during the lifetime of the project.

Expected and/ or achieved results

Lessons learnt

The development phase of the project focussed on a cross country analysis regarding the legal and practical experiences with green procurement. Almost 100 case studies and good practices were compiled and can be searched by key words on the international project website. The examples contain a section which reflects on the main barriers regarding implementing green procurement. It is recognised that the low awareness regarding green procurement remains as the major challenge. The tools, as well as the dissemination part will aim to address these findings.
