Green Public Procurement (GPP) is a process whereby government entities seek to procure products, services and/or contracting works with a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle when compared to other products, services and works with the same primary function.
GPP is in line with Ras Al Khaimah’s Energy Efficiency and Renewables Strategy 2040 (EE&R Strategy) which supports the competitiveness of Ras Al Khaimah’s economy over the long run, by reducing energy and water consumption and increasing the share of renewables. The EE&R Strategy also aims to create a new market for products and services related to energy efficiency and renewables, which would contribute to the economic growth of the Emirate as well as the development of local skills and capabilities.
The launch event of GPP in Ras Al Khaimah will reveal the newly developed GPP Guidelines, which will drive adoption of green procurement in the Government of Ras Al Khaimah in the coming years.
The Ras Al Khaimah Green Public Procurement (GPP) is being launched virtually on Monday, 16 November, at 1:00 pm UAE time. Join us to:
