Greening state framework contracts – Approaches in the Nordic countries
The purpose of this project was to clear out how Green Public Procurement has been realized in state framework contracts in the Nordic countries, to propose country-specific ways to improve the situation, and to draw a general model of efficient ways to realize green state framework contracts. The target group includes organizations preparing/ making state framework contracts in each Nordic country, political representatives, government officials, consumer and environmental agency officials, and others interested in GPP.
