EIPRO-Environmental Impact of Products




“GPP is a process whereby public authorities seek
to procure goods, services and works with a
reduced environmental impact throughout their life
cycle when compared to goods, services and works
with the same primary function that would
otherwise be procured.“ (17% of EU GDP)
GPP- a powerful tool
                        Saves money

        The latest study (2008) demonstrates that 7
    EU MS (UK, DK, FI, NL, AU, DE, SE) have on
    average 45 % of the total value and 55 % of the
    total number of contracts in 2006/07 – green.

      Analysis also points out that there is on
    average 1% decrease of costs when using GPP
    (LCC approach), and 25 % decrease of CO2
    emissions
