Green Procurement in Local Authorities
Procurement in Municipalities for Integrative Solutions on Energy - PROMISE

To view the project's publishable outputs, go to Documents

The main objectives of PROMISE were:
  • to find ways of reducing energy costs for municipalities and thus reducing the negative environmental impacts of energy consumption;
  • to develop approaches and tools for local municipality staff to integrate Renewable Energy Sources (RES) and the Rational Use of Energy (RUE) into public procurement processes;
  • to train local staff and carry out pilot projects that demonstrate procurement of RES and RUE.

    PROMISE began in January 2002 and finished in December 2003.
