Green public procurement (GPP) involves the incorporation of environmental requirements during the procurement of services and products by public authorities. This chapter provides an overview on the growth of GPP in recent years by focusing on its expansion towards sustainable public procurement (SPP), where sustainable development considerations are integrated. Furthermore, the chapter discusses the implementation of GPP/SPP in the construction sector, and issues related to approaches in procurement procedure, GPP/SPP criteria, and the link between criteria and functional objectives of contracts. The chapter highlights that such issues need to be addressed during the progress towards SPP.
