Brochure on winner projects EU GPP Award online
Public procurement can have a sweeping impact on a local authority’s climate and energy performance. Municipalities and districts that implement sustainable procurement practices get now the much deserved recognition via the newly launched European GPP Award, which distinguishes outstanding green public procurement projects in Europe.
Winners of this first ever European GPP Award were chosen in three categories according to the size of the participating municipality. In the selection process, an independent jury first decided on the best submissions. The jury payed special attention to the CO2 savings brought about by each project as well as its level of innovation and transferability. Social responsibility and the local authority‘s commitment to energy efficiency were also be factored in.
