Green Public Procurement

 

Green procurement means buying and acquiring goods and services in an intelligent and responsible way to advance in sustainability.

Green Procurement and procurement is the purchase or contracting of products and/or services that takes into account, not only the economic or technical aspects, but also the environmental impact of them throughout their all life cycle. This means that, at the time of purchase, in addition to considering the environmental performance of the materials and products, the methods and procedures in the execution of the contracts and the environmental performance of the suppliers and the manufacturers themselves must be taken into account.

The economic volume of Green Public Procurement (GPP) represents approximately a 16% of European GDP. This has meant that, from the European Commission itself, the GPP is recognized as a high value tool to implement environmental strategies and business competitiveness. Green public procurement is therefore a tool that has clear advantages for administrations and their suppliers since:

  • Generates important environmental improvement
  • Shows the exemplarity of administrations, improving their image
  • It pulls the private sector, promoting the competitiveness of companies
  • Promotes the development of new markets of environmentally best products and services

From IK INGENIERIA, we advise government on how to implement Green Public Procurement strategies. We designed the strategies to be introduced in public contracts (procurement of furniture, office supplies, different services, etc.) to drive the suppliers of the administration on the path to sustainability.
