Procurement Standards in Europe

Green procurement is a process whereby purchasers seek to procure goods, services and works with a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle when compared with goods, services and works with the same primary function that would otherwise be procured.

Green purchasing is about setting an example and influencing the market place. Total public procurement in the EU – i.e. the purchases of goods, services and public works by governments and public utilities - is estimated at about 19 % of the Union’s gross domestic product or 2 trillion Euros. Its importance varies significantly between Member States ranging between 11 % and 20 % of their gross domestic product. >>>read more
