Buildings

The revision of Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for "Office Buildings" has started in the first half of 2021. The duration of the project is expected to be around 2 years. The following tasks are foreseen in the project:

  1. Scope and definitions
  2. Market analysis
  3. Identification of main environmental impacts associated with buildings
  4. Technical analysis and improvement potential
  5. Elaboration of draft criteria proposals and technical report

The initial proposals will seek to, as much as possible, reflect the priorities set out in the Commission's recent Communication ‘A Renovation Wave for Europe – ’and New European Bauhaus’ Initiative. The proposals will also aim to build upon the new European framework for sustainable buildings – Level(s), and consider, among others, revision of the Energy Efficiency and Energy performance of Buildings Directives.

Stakeholder consultation

The revision process will consist of a written consultation of the draft technical report and the revised criteria proposal. The formal stakeholder consultations are planned to take place in the first half of 2022 though to the end of 2022. If you would like to be involved in the consultation process, you can do so through the website, by registering as a stakeholder.
