EU GPP case study: Spanish province of Toledo procures sustainable wood products
In 2010, the Provincial Council of Toledo in central Spain adopted a declaration on SPP, established an action plan and a committee to oversee implementation. The procurement of forest products, such as timber, paper and cork has been the first major area of focus for the Council. A tender for outdoor benches to be placed in various municipalities implemented criteria related to the sustainable sourcing of timber. In 2011, 926 certified wood benches were procured for 127 municipalities, which meant a total investment of €140,000. Sustainability criteria are now being extended to further product groups such as cleaning services, catering and IT equipment. Toledo’s Environmental Service is offering advice and assistance to other public authorities in the province.
