Dear Sir/Madam,

This is to inform you that the EU GPP criteria for public space maintenance have been finalised – SWD(2019) 404 and will soon be on the GPP webpage here: https://ec.europa.eu/environment/gpp/eu_gpp_criteria_en.htm . The criteria SWD is currently available in English but translations are ongoing and should be ready towards end of January 2020.

 

In the meantime, you can view the criteria on the project webpage with the description EU GPP criteria for public space maintenance SWD at this link https://susproc.jrc.ec.europa.eu/Public_space_maintenance/documents.html. Thank you.

 

The criteria covers the following categories:

  • outdoor cleaning products and services
  • gardening products and services
  • machinery products and services
  • vehicles and service fleets and,
  • common criteria for service categories

 

The use of these criteria has the potential to considerably reduce environmental impacts from public space maintenance, for instance by setting requirements on:

  • the cleaning products formulation and raw material use, manufacturing and end-of-life of cleaning products and disposable cleaning accessories;
  • the purchase of native ornamental plants;
  • the organic constituents of growing media and mulches and strict limitations on heavy metals in soil improvers;
  • water saving in irrigation systems and watering practices;
  • gardening practices to enhance biodiversity;
  • the use of low-emissions vehicles and machineries

 

The criteria is one of several product group EU GPP criteria being developed to facilitate the inclusion of green requirements in public tender documents. Please have a look.

We thank you for your support in the development of the criteria.

With kind regards,
