GPP in practice

gppSince January 2010, the European Commission has collected examples of GPP in practice to illustrate how European public authorities have successfully launched ‘green’ tenders, and provide guidance for others who wish to do the same.

The new “GPP brochure of good practice examples” presents some of the most interesting case studies collected over the years. The brochure is intended to inspire public (and private) procurers to opt for green products and services when making their purchasing decisions.

Read the brochure here.
