Greener

Boosting industry engagement in green procurement

European Erasmus+ project that aims to support companies participation in Green Public Procurement

Green Procurement will open a new market for your company while support the transition to a circular economy

Green and circular public procurement skills enhance the production standard, thus increasing competitiveness in international markets

To successfully implement green and circular procurement, employees must obtain appropriate practical skills, knowledge, and access to information

Green and circular public procurement is a key tool to boost SMEs and large companies to achieve a circular transition and to develop circular solutions

Green Public Procurement (GPP) is defined as "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."
