Presentation Transcript

  1. Tallinn GPP Seminar, May 2013 • GPP in practice: Vienna EcoBuy programme • Eva Persy, City of Vienna, Environmental Department

  2. Overview • Background • Organisation „OekoKauf Wien“ • Development of criteria • Examples • Communication • Benefits • Conclusion

  3. City Profile 1.8 million inhabitants special position: (capital) city as well as federal province volume of purchasing budget: 5 billion Euro

  4. GPP and Climate Protection 1 of 3 spearheads of the Vienna Climate Protection Programme (KliP) adopted by the Vienna City Council in November 1999

  5. Structure No extra personell!! Steering team >20 working groups (e.g. building construction, food, cleaning, paper, electrical appliances, vehicle fleet, events, textiles …) 3 consultative commitees  Altogether some 180 internal and external staff

  6. Development of criteria Within working groups About 4 – 6 meetings/year About 10 experts/group staff from relevant departments co-operate with experts from affiliated bodies and external organisations Budget for research, pilot projects,..

  7. Win-Win (Study by PwC, 2009) CO2 Reduction Long term savings

  8. CO2 Reduction (EcoBuy) • data for 2004 - 2007 • organic food • energy saving devices • water saving devices • In total 103,000 tonnes CO2 reduction (selected product groups, 04-07)

  9. International Awards 2011 Best Practice Transfer Award European Public Sector Award (EPSA) 2011 274 applications from 32 European countries 3 Awards; winner: “going green”

  10. building sector: good indoor airquality • Air = most important substance for living: 6 – 10 l/min • Europeans nearly 90 % of time indoors • Health and Safety at Work (workers) • Healthy air for residents • Environment protection (as a side-effect)

  11. Hazardous substances VOC (organic chemicals): Eye, nose, throat irritation; headaches; damage to liver, kidney, and central nervous system CMR-chemicals (carcinogenic, mutagenic, repro-toxic) heavy metals formaldehyde biocides

  12. critical limit target value TVOC:(Total Volatile Organic Compounds) TVOC [µg/m³] 3000 in new buildings common 2000 Guidance values for TVOCs in indoor air German Federal Environment Agency 1000 300 measure 0

  13. Vienna North Hospital

  14. Site Protecting/restoring areas of unspoiled nature; Building structures as part of the landscape; Use of potable water and rainwater; Transportation connections

  15. Interior Thermal comfort; Indoor air quality; Flexibility of use; Accessibility; User control (ventilation, shading, lighting)

  16. Construction Environment protection on site; Reducing waste, dust, noise and vibrations; Complying with the ÖkoKauf Wien standards; Materials that are easy to clean and maintain

  17. Results • considering sustainability criteria early on in the process • applying life-cycle costing • possible to build considerations into the economic aspect of the project from the outset • Estimated reductions include: energy demand for heating by 25% and energy for cooling by 20%, below current minimum legal requirements

  18. Communication Production of posters, folders, brochures, videos, “hands on-material”: • Examples: Posters/folders explaining the advantages of “fair trade”, brochures regarding energy saving light bulbs, video and game collection explaining background information of organic farming to children

  19. Benefits • GPP allows public authorities to achieve environmental targets: CO2 Reduction • Role model for public • Induced innovation • Cost reductions for private buyers • e.g. organic food • Positive effects on health • Long term savings
