Procurement of low-carbon residential buildingsusing life-cycle assessment criteria in City of Helsinki (Finland)
EC GPP Case Study: The City government is striving to finds ways to mitigate the effects of climate change through public procurement. In this context, Helsinki has (since 2019) been selecting several pilot projects where the carbon footprint is measured and sustainable procurement criteria are included. The City is working towards improving existing and developing new procurement criteria that consider life-cycle impacts of the product/service, circular economy and climate challenges.
This low carbon building construction project – called the Asetelmakatu DB project - represents one of the pilot procurements connected to the EU Life funded Towards Carbon Neutral Municipalities and Regions (CANEMURE) project.
