Greening state framework contracts - Approaches in the Nordic countries

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.



Nordic SFC-models revisited

Based on the best practices identified and the maturity model developed in chapter four this chapter seeks to pinpoint key recommendations for each of the five Nordic countries in a quest for developing a more effective and environmentally beneficial practice with development and use of SFCs. A general finding is that all countries could benefit from a more formalised exchange of GPP and SFC experience – good practices and elements have been identified in each of the countries and systematic exchange could contribute to more effective national green GPP models.
