  Green Public Procurement
 

Project plan

 

The criteria development process for Windows and External Doors has been put on hold. The draft criteria set developed in discussion with stakeholders from industry, NGO and member states does, in the context of existing legislation related to construction and buildings, not provide sufficient environmental benefits which would justify separate Green Public Procurement provisions.

This pilot project will be based mainly on the methodology reported in the Annex I of the Regulation (EC) No 66/2010 of the European Parliament and the council of 25 November 2009 on the EU Ecolabel.

Task 1: Product definition and categorization of the Windows and external doors products

Task 2: Economic and market analysis

Task 3: Technical analysis

Task 4: Improvement potential

Task 5: Elaboration of draft criteria and technical background reports


The mission of the JRC is to provide customer-driven scientific and technical support for the conception, development, implementation and monitoring of EU policies. As a service of the European Commission, the JRC functions as a reference centre of science and technology for the Union. Close to the policy-making process, it serves the common interest of the Member States, while being independent of special interests, whether private or national.
