GPP-STREAM - Green Public Procurement and Sustainability Tools for Resource Efficiency Mainstreaming

Green Public Procurement, a lever for circular economy

The aim of the GPP-STREAM project is to analyse the national sustainable procurement plans of the eight partner countries, as well as the financial resources allocated to this issue. In order to support the authorities in improving national plans, the project partners can learn from each other's good practices. In France, the National Action Plan for Green Public Procurement (PNAAPD) is the reference document and the regional project partners will have the opportunity to exchange views on proposals for improving its content.

The Ministry for the Ecological and Inclusive Transition supports this project and, in order to benefit from direct feedback from the field, chose to use the experience of the Regional Network on Public Procurement, led by AURA-EE for many years. The project’s results will be taken into consideration in the preparation of the next PNAAPD.

Towards a green demand of goods and services

The project is structured around several objectives:

  • Identify, collect and share best practices and support tools for introducing green procurement in public organisations
  • Improve the integration of Green Public Procurement (GPP) objectives into financing programmes and development plans and policies
  • Improve the capacity of national, regional and local administrations to implement GPP measures
  • Improve the monitoring of GPP in instrumental policies in France, such as the PNAAPD, the Single Regional Waste Prevention and Management Plan or the Regional Action Plan for Circular Economy
  • Stimulate the adoption of a green demand for goods and services, throughout the implementation of these instrumental policies.
