EU GPP case study: Basque Council maintains buildings the greener way (Spain)
The Provincial Council of Gipuzkoa is responsible for the operation and upkeep of a number of buildings in Donostia-San Sebastian, the province’s capital. As part of its environmental strategy, the Council aims to incorporate GPP criteria across a range of its contracts. The high impact associated with heating, cooling, lighting, waste and other aspects of building operation and maintenance make this a priority area for GPP. In 2010 a tender was published for the maintenance of two properties – one residential and one office building. With help from Ihobe (Basque Environmental Management Agency), the Council implemented criteria relating to the skills and experience of the personnel in providing environmentally friendly building maintenance. Contract performance clauses also addressed the waste management plan of the contractor and environmental reporting requirements.
