This report contains the results of a scoping study on the potential for mainstreaming green public procurement in the Nordic countries. The report gives recommendations on how green public procurement can be better integrated in other policy areas. The study was financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers’ Working group on Sustainable Consumption and Production.




Green Public Procurement (GPP) has been an important strategy for achieving environmental goals for the past 10 years, especially in the Northern European and some Asian Countries. Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP = GPP + economic and social aspects) wasalso identified as a focus area at the Johannesburg Summit and is being implemented in 10–14 developing countries as pilot projects by the Marrakech Task Force lead by Switzerland.
