GPP Training Programme in Eleven European Countries

On behalf of the European Commission, ICLEI Europe is coordinating training on Green Public Procurement (GPP) across eleven European countries, including Cyprus, Latvia, Portugal, Hungary, Poland, Romania, Croatia, Bulgaria, Estonia, and Lithuania.  Training is delivered by national organisations in each of these countries. The objective of this programme is to support a higher uptake of GPP throughout the EU, providing high-quality training material and targeted training schemes.

Topics covered include how to implement GPP, the legal context for GPP, how to assess needs for GPP, engaging with suppliers and an introduction to circular procurement. In addition, the training will cover GPP within ten product and service categories including computers and monitors, food and catering and transport.

The training material will be made available on the European Commission GPP website for your organisation to use. For more information on sustainable and innovation procurement training opportunities, you can get in touch with us at
