Mainstreaming GPP in the Nordic countries - a scoping study

image of Mainstreaming GPP in the Nordic countries - a scoping study

This report contains the results of a scoping study on the potential for mainstreaming green public procurement in the Nordic countries. The report gives recommendations on how green public procurement can be better integrated in other policy areas. The study was financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Working group on Sustainable Consumption and Production.



General remarks and country specific observations

On a general level the policy level responsibility of GPP and PP seems to be divided in all five countries. The responsibility of the national Action Plan on GPP lies at the Environmental Ministry or Agency, whereas the Finance/Administration Ministry usually leads the development of public procurement. The co-operation at policy level seems to be more led by GPP. As such a stronger commitment to mainstreaming is needed at ministry level.
