Green Public Procurement Manual on Plastic Waste Prevention
This manual presents possible contributions from Green Public Procurement to avoiding plastics as waste. The manual first introduces main concepts within waste prevention (e.g. preparing for reuse). The second part of the manual presents the GPP approach and environmental challenges. Finally, the manual introduces criteria to GPP within packaging, furniture, office supply and IT equipment.

The included criteria are primarily collections of GPP criteria from the European Commission, Type 1 eco-labels (EU ECOLABEL) and the "Nordic ecolabelling" certification schemes. The criteria are complemtary to regular public procurements and should be assessed accordingly.  

The manual is available in English and Danish.
