Green Public Procurement (GPP) in the EU

The study on Green public Procurement (GPP) was completed last December 2019 and contains essential information on the types of GPP in various EU countries and their implementation. This report in Spanish discusses, for example, the use of environmental labeling schemes in support of GPP, the international standard and the European directives related to GPP.

The study also addressed three concrete sectors, to show approaches and strategies of GPP for printed materials and services, construction works and external services, especially event organization and catering. The interest of the DFG is to expand their green public procurement activities by learning from initiatives in other countries for these three sectors mentioned before. The study includes recommendations as well as a list of resources and tool available in Spanish and English.
