Abstract: The revision of the Green Public Procurement (GPP) criteria for Computers and Monitors is aimed at helping public authorities to ensure that computers and monitors are procured in such a way that it delivers environmental improvements that contribute to European policy objectives for energy, chemical management and resource efficiency, as well as 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 manufacturing and using computers and monitors. The most commonly used procurement processes for computers and monitors have been also identified and are further addressed in the separate criteria document (published as a Staff Working Document of the Commission). Together these two documents aim to provide public authorities with orientation on how to effectively integrate these GPP criteria into the procurement process.
