GPP 2020 aims to mainstream low-carbon procurement across Europe in support of the EU’s goal to achieve a 20 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, a 20 percent increase in the share of renewable energy, and a 20 percent increase in energy efficiency by 2020.
A core aim within the GPP 2020 project is to tender and contract low carbon products, works and services. Through these tenders CO2 emissions are reduced and a more energy efficient economy is encouraged. To achieve long term sustainability, the tenders need to be replicable for other local authorities interested in making their procurement greener.
In line with this, each tender issued by one of the GPP 2020 partners is documented as a ‘tender model’, using a case study format. These tender models are easily accessible through the project’s searchable tender database. Eight new tenders have been published, with more to come.
