EU GPP case study: Reduced environmental impact printing consumables in Tuscany, Italy
Amongst other environmental obligations, public procurers in Tuscany must increase the use of recovered and recycled materials, and as well as technologies, techniques, systems and production processes with a low environmental impact. The Region of Tuscany wished to procure toner cartridges for its own purposes and on behalf of other public authorities. The subject matter of the open tender, worth €4.1 million, was “The supply of consumables for reduced environmental impact printing systems”. Technical specifications, award criteria and contract performance clauses were also used to ensure high environmental performance in terms of chemical composition, remanufactured materials and Life Cycle Impacts (LCA). The Tuscany Region was awarded the Premio CompraVerde Award 2013 for this tender procedure due to the completeness of the tender as well as the accuracy with which environmental aspects are covered in the tender documentation.
