image of Greening state framework contracts - Approaches in the Nordic countries

The purpose of this study 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 study was carried through in 2014 and 2015 by Bjørn Bauer and Rikke Fischer-Bogason (PlanMiljø, Denmark), Luitzen de Boer and Sig1urd Vildåsen (Norwegian University of Science and Technology), and Timo Kivistö (Kivistö Consulting, Finland). The study was supervised by the Working Group of Nordic Council of Ministers for Sustainable Consumption and Production (i.e. HKP-group). In addition to this Full Report, the project has also resulted in a short Summary Report and a power point presentation (slides), including the key findings and conclusions.



Key themes in green SFCs

The project has conducted studies on green SFCs in the five Nordic countries, based on a preliminary analytical model developed through the first months of the project. The model, which is inspired by a series of previous international analyses of endeavours for strengthening GPP, has initially and continuously during the analytical phase been adapted to the specific purpose of the present project. The elaborated model is presented in section 4.
