Abstract: 
The revision of the Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for Textile products and Services is aimed at helping public authorities to ensure that textiles products and services are procured in such a way that it delivers environmental improvements that contribute to European policy objectives for energy, chemical management and resource efficiency, as well as reducing life cycle costs. In order to identify the most significant improvement areas for criteria development an analysis has been carried out of the environmental impacts of manufacturing and using textile products and providing textile services. The most commonly used procurement processes have been also identified and are further addressed in the separate criteria document (published as a Staff Working Document of the Commission). Together these two documents aim to provide public authorities with orientation on how to effectively integrate these GPP criteria into their procurement processes.
