NATIONAL STRATEGY FOR GREEN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT 2020 (ENCPE 2020)

 

 

This is a key piece of legislation, given the highly relevant role public procurement can play in achieving the sustainability goals by incorporating environmental criteria in tendering procedures.

The ENCPE 2020 applies to the State’s direct and indirect administration as well as to the State-owned enterprises sector, and, on an optional basis, to local authorities and other legal persons governed by public law.

The Agência Portuguesa do Ambiente (APA,  the Portuguese Environment Agency) shall be responsible for following up and monitoring the implementation of the ENCPE 2020, in coordination with the Entidade de Serviços Partilhados da Administração Pública (ESPAP, I.P., the Portuguese Managing Body of  Public Administration Shared Services), the Serviços Partilhados do Ministério da Saúde (SPMS – EPE, the Shared Services of the Portuguese Ministry of Health) and the Instituto dos Mercados Públicos, do Imobiliário e da Construção (IMPIC, I.P., the Institute of Public Procurement, Real Estate and Construction).
