Objective of the project is the ongoing support of the market dissemination of environmentally more benign products and services by public procurement (GPP). Additionally, it is intended that the measures announced in the SCP/SIP action plan of the European Commision will be reflected and further developed by Germany. To realise this, the project carries out several activities, especially an evaluation and update of the website, marketing, a strategic positioning of GPP in the context of product-related environmental policy instruments, trainings of public procurers and challenges of institutionalisation and monitoring of GPP.
