Case studies: Since January 2010, the European Commission has been promoting good practice experiences on GPP to illustrate how public authorities in Europe have successfully 'greened' a public tender or procurement process. These include the use of life-cycle costing (LCC), circular economy principles and approaches fostering sustainable innovation, among others. These good practice cases also provide some ‘lessons learned’ for those wishing to replicate experiences.
Examples published before 2022 can be found here. Please note that the good practice examples will gradually be added to this page.
