GPP Awards

The best in green public procurement

Europe's public authorities are major consumers. By using their purchasing power to choose environmentally friendly goods and services, they can make an important contribution to sustainable consumption and production.

In 2016, the first GPP Awards for Green Public Procurement were awarded on a national and international level in three categories. The projects were judged on basis of the following criteria: CO2 savings, innovation, transferability, social responsibility and the local authority’s commitment to energy efficiency.
