EU GPP case study: Cost-efficient and clean police cars in Berlin, Germany
Berlin’s police force purchases some 200 vehicles every year. Their most recent tender (from May 2012) saw the inclusion of a number of environmental and economic requirements as recommended by the European Clean Vehicles Directive. In addition to including some basic environmental criteria as a requirement, the contract was awarded based on the life-cycle, energy and environmental costs of the vehicles. The tendering procedure, the first of its kind using life-cycle costing (LCC), including green costs, proved successful and thus will be used again by the police force in the future.
