  Green Public Procurement



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.

The most recent documents are listed on this page. These are the draft technical background report and the draft citeria. Please bear in mind that these documents are drafts and are not in a final form.
