Final opportunity for input into revised EU GPP criteria on transport

26 February 2018

The European Union's Joint Research Centre is seeking final stakeholder input on its revision of Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria on transport. A draft technical report including criteria proposals are now available online. The new criteria will update the last set published in 2012, principally expanding the overall scope to include two new service categories: 'mobility services' and 'post, courier and moving services'. Input from stakeholders can be submitted via the BATIS platform until 25 March 2018.

The 2012 criteria covering cars and light commercial vehicles (LCVs), buses and bus services, waste collection vehicles and waste collection services, will also be updated to align with Directives and to reflect better their intended areas of application. The new transport criteria will include core and comprehensive criteria so that they can be applied in both public authorities with advanced implementation of GPP and those who are seeking to implement more fundamental sustainability criteria into their purchasing policy.

GPP criteria on twenty other goods and services categories have been developed by the European Commission for voluntary application by public authorities. Good practice examples addressing these categories have also been compiled on the DG Environment website in all official EU languages.
