EU GPP case study: Bulgarian Agency greens its project management
The Bulgarian Agency for Social Assistance has been piloting a more sustainable approach to managing projects. In 2011, it awarded a number of contracts which applied GPP criteria for the supply of printed material, paper and office supplies, as well as logistics in organising and conducting seminars. The criteria included requirements on the use of recycled plastics and paper and the provision of organic food and drink products during meetings. With good results emerging from the pilot, the ASA is making a broader commitment to implement GPP in its activities. It is also acting as an ambassador for other agencies and departments wishing to apply similar practices. The result is helping to achieve the targets set out in Bulgaria’s National Action Plan for 2012-2014.
