  3. Why GPP? EIPRO-Environmental Impact of Products “GPP is a process whereby public authorities seek to procure goods, services and works with a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle when compared to goods, services and works with the same primary function that would otherwise be procured.“ (17% of EU GDP)

  4. GPP- a powerful tool

  5. GPP Milestones • EC Interpretative Communication, 2001 • 6th Environmental Action Plan, 2002 • Communication on Integrated Product Policy, 2003 • New legal framework for Public Procurement, 2004 • Renewed EU Sustainable Development Strategy, 2006 • Sustainable Consumption and Production and Sustainable Industrial Policy Action Plan, 2008 • Communication on GPP, 2008

Eco-label Voluntary « Label of excellence » 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 Labelling Directive A+++ A++ A+ A B C D G EU GPP Stimulate market for better products ensuring adequate competition Incentives Ecodesign: Voluntary benchmarks Compulsory minimum requirements EU GPP Not procure below benchmark Ecodesign Exclusion from markets Product Category

  7. Communication on Public Procurement for a Better Environment Political target: 50 % of tendering procedures to be green by 2010 • Common GPP criteria for 10 priority products / services • Legal/ Operational guidance: GPP Training Toolkit • Monitoring – develop indicators

  8. GPP Training toolkit Methodology to develop a GPP AP and raise political support Module 1 (strategic) Clear examples on how and where to integrate green criteria into the PP procedure Module 2 (legal) Module 3 (operational) Criteria for 10 product /service groups

  9. GPP Training Toolkit Construction Electricity Cleaning products and services Textiles Food and catering services Furniture Office IT equipment Paper Gardening products and services Transport • Core criteria: address the key environmental impacts • Comprehensive criteria: to purchase the best environmental products available on the market. Windows, Thermal insulation, Boilers, Air conditioning and heat pumps, Wall Panels, Hard floor-coverings, Cogenerations (CHP), Road construction and traffic signs, Street lighting and traffic signals, Mobile phones

  10. Status in Member States • The latest study (2008) demonstrates that 7 EU MS (UK, DK, FI, NL, AU, DE, SE) have on average 45 % of the total value and 55 % of the total number of contracts in 2006/07 – green. • Analysis also points out that there is on average 1% decrease of costs when using GPP (LCC approach), and 25 % decrease of CO2 emissions

  11. GPP per product group/number (study)

  12. Overall financial impact of GPP/study(left is cost reduction, right cost increase)

  13. Ongoing activities • endorsement of common GPP criteria in national action plans and guidances • develop new GPP criteria in sinergy with existing frameworks (EU Ecolabel, Eco-design) • linking the GPP policy to other policies

  14. GPP requirements - Energy Star Regulation(2008), obliges central governments and EU institutions - Energy end-use efficiency and energy services Directive(2006), exemplary role for public sector - Directive on the promotion of clean & energy efficient road transport vehicles (obliges public authorities and public service providers) • Energy Performance in Buildings Directive => public authorities asexemplary role • EU Ecolabel Regulation=> manual for GPP
