|GP: GreenLabelsPurchase – making a greener procurement - Regional|
This project will promote the increased use of energy labels in the procurement process of public authorities, the tertiary sector, industry and SMEs.
Expected and/ or achieved results
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.
