Rome introduces new measures to enhance green public procurement

19 May 2016

The Metropolitan Area of Rome (Italy) has published a pricing list for sustainable construction materials based on an analysis of the materials’ availability, while also introducing a new GPP monitoring system, the first of its kind in Italy.

In Italy public works are estimated on the basis of regional price lists. The Metropolitan City of Rome, in response to the challenges of a lack of information on local market readiness and costs when introducing environmental criteria into public works tenders, carried out a detailed analysis on the availability of low environmental impact construction materials at national and regional level.

The Metropolitan City approved a new price list based on the results of this analysis to be adopted as a reference for public works. Rome has also introduced a new monitoring system to efficiently assess the achievement of GPP objectives. The Metropolitan City of Rome is the first public authority in Italy to adopt this innovative monitoring system.
