German Federal Environment Agency website aims to make green procurement easier

21 November 2013

The new website of the German Federal Environment Agency has been launched, featuring a wide-range of information on effectively carrying out green public procurement. The website offers interested visitors the opportunity to learn more about sustainable procurement and how it can benefit them, the economy and the environment.

Tender recommendations, good practice examples, and a database of environmental criteria for inclusion in tenders are all available to browse. Users can also submit their own good practice examples for publication via an online form.

New product related guidelines, and more detailed information on embedding sustainable procurement into organisational and management structures is included in the site, providing procurers with practical, replicable information. Additionally, an online tool enables procurers to calculate life cycle costs. The site also provides links to further literature on the topic.
