The following tool has been developed in the frame of the GreenS project which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme.

The GreenS consortium developed an online catalogue with good examples of suppliers and producers, who introduce their green goods to our society. The catalogue was created as a result of a Market research, carried out during the past months by the GreenS consortium. The goal is to facilitate you in the process of preliminary research and preparation of the green public procurement documentation.

The catalogue is open to green companies who operate on the market in the partner countries. Each company is responsible for entering their data with the aim to be in favour of the procurers.

The GreenS catalogue is an active tool, which is in constant improvement, following the market development. It’s being updated regularly and serves as one of the innovative GPP tools, created within GreenS project. Check it out and make the best use of it!

The aims of the project are to be achieved by the following activities, that will be carried out by an European consortium of 14 partners from 8 EU countries:

  • Analysis of best/bad practices in GPP implementation and identification of the main necessities, obstacles and issues faced by the public authorities
  • Trainings for trainers and for public procurement experts will be carried out throughout the partner countries. The training materials will be elaborated by the project consortium and an e-learning platform will enable continuous capacity building.
  • Each region will be equipped with a training and capacity building programme as well as with a concept for institutionalization of the GPP training
  • Green Public Procurement Supporters units will be established within the partner energy agencies, which staff will be trained to give technical support to public authorities in the field of GPPs
  • Steering Committees with main stakeholders will be created and will be actively involved in development of strategies, identification of obstacles to GPP process and for creation of policy recommendations
  • A database with technical templates will be created and pilot GPP procedures will be carried out by 21 public administrations, with the active support of GreenS experts.

The GreenS consortium is structured by seven Energy Agencies, and 7 institutional bodies thus ensuring the multilevel cooperation and policy improvement in the GPP area.
