The Nordic Swan: Possibilities and limitations for synergies with Green Public Procurement before 2014
Responsible organisation
2015 (English)Report (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

This report was initiated and conducted as input to the discussions based on the “Vision 2015” document for the Nordic Swan that explicitly states a wish to find ways to make use of ecolabelling in the green public procurement (GPP) setting. In 2014, the Directive (2004/18/EG) on public procurement was revised and replaced by Directive (2014/24/EU). Some of the restrictions in using ecolabelling in GPP mentioned in this report may thus not be valid while the discussion on the relation between the two policy instruments as such still is considered relevant.

The project was financed by the Nordic Council of Environmental Ministers´ (NCM) Working Group for Sustainable Consumption and Production (HKP-gruppen) and carried out by the IIIEE at Lund´s University.
