Green Public Procurement
Guidance for the Public Sector
This guidance and accompanying criteria support the inclusion of sustainable and green practices into public sector procurement procedures. They are aimed primarily at public sector procurers in central and local government, state agencies and other public bodies such as universities, hospitals and schools. They are also relevant for utility sector procurers and will be of interest to private companies whether they are responding to tenders or applying green criteria in their own procurement.
The documents provide step-by-step instructions and criteria for implementing green public procurement and should be the go-to guide across the public sector when procuring goods, works and services.
