Abstract: The development of Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for the design, construction and management of office buildings is aimed at helping public authorities to ensure that projects are procured and implemented in order to deliver environmental improvements that contribute to European policy objectives for energy and resource efficiency, as well as providing healthy working conditions and reducing life cycle costs. In order to identify the most significant improvement areas for criteria development an analysis has been carried out of the environmental and health impacts of constructing and operating office buildings. The most commonly used procurement processes for office buildings, as well as the actors involved in delivering successful projects, have also been identified and are further addressed in an accompanying GPP guidance document. Together these two documents aim to provide public authorities with orientation on how to effectively integrate these GPP criteria into the procurement process.
