Green Public Procurement (GPP) , European Commission 2008 – Voluntary instrument that was developed to facilitate the inclusion of environmental requirements in public tender documents across the EU member states. GPP criteria were developed for different project groups (e.g. road design, construction and maintenance) and are applicable for PPPs. The criteria are formulated in such a way that they can be integrated into tender documents. The GPP criteria are supported by a draft Guidance document that provides orientation on how to effectively integrate these GPP criteria into the procurement process. An accompanying Technical Report provides further details on the reasons for selecting these criteria and references for further information.
