Procurement for a low-carbon economy

GPP 2020 aimed to mainstream low-carbon procurement across Europe in support of the EU’s goals to achieve a 20% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, a 20% increase in the share of renewable energy and a 20% increase in energy efficiency by 2020.

To this end, GPP 2020 implemented more than 100 low-carbon tenders, which directly resulted in substantial CO₂ savings. Moreover, GPP 2020 ran a capacity building programme that included trainings and exchange.
