Title: Green Public Procurement (GPP) of refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump (RACHP) products – Nordic criteria
Green Public Procurement (GPP) is an important way to accelerate the phase out of high GWP HFCs and stimulate the market for further development of natural and more environmentally friendly alternatives in the refrigeration, air-conditioning and heat-pump sectors. The side event will present green procurement criteria developed in the Nordic countries to assist contracting authorities in identifying and procuring low GWP RACHP products. Criteria, which can be directly inserted into tender documents, have been developed for 25 product categories. After the presentation of the criteria, there will be time to discuss and share ideas on the topic. We would be interested to hear if you have experiences with the use of GPP criteria or are planning to develop them.
