Abstract: The report proposes and substantiates Green Public Procurement criteria for the product group of ‘Sanitary Tapware’, which includes taps and showers. Green Public Procurement criteria allow public authorities to integrate environmental aspects in their purchasing decisions. The report contains the criteria proposal itself, the underlying scientific evidence regarding the environmental impacts of sanitary tapware, and it describes the most important European legislation and labelling schemes relevant for this product group. Discussions with stakeholders from industry, NGOs and Member States have supported the development of the criteria. These contributions are also reflected in the analysis presented in this report.
