The EU Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria are developed to facilitate the inclusion of green requirements in public tender documents. While the adopted EU GPP criteria aim to reach a good balance between environmental performance, cost considerations, market availability and ease of verification, procuring authorities may choose, according to their needs and ambition level, to include all or only certain requirements in their tender documents.
GPP criteria have been developed for e.g. cleaning products, printing paper, food and catering services, construction works, road maintenance, road transport, and road lighting. These guidelines will help local authorities in the procurement of low-emission transport services.
