Scientific Support of Processes for an Enforced Consideration of Environmental Criteria in Public Procurement (GPP)

Main objective of the project is to support the German Federal Environment Agency in its activities to strengthen green public procurement (GPP) in Germany. The very first task of the consortium consists of drafting a concrete procurement action plan to achieve the governments' goal of 50 percent sustainable textiles in national procurement activities until the year 2020. Main emphasis is to elaborate on/update specific procurement recommendations for a variety of product groups and to update assessments of current GPP law and legal practice. Furthermore, the project team delivers content in support of the procurement platform www.beschaffung-info.de and updates the existing training material on "Green public procurement" of the Agency.
