Green Public Procurement

Reducing the environmental impact caused by public sector consumption and using Green Public Procurement (GPP) to stimulate innovation in environmental technologies, products and services is a growing concern among institutional bodies.

Sourcing organically is one way institutions can greatly increase their sustainability, and promote the development of environmentally friendly and sustainable agriculture and food practices. IFOAM EU advocates to have organic recognised as a sustainable alternative in public procurement by the relevant European Institutions, including by spreading best practice.
