MO-105: Using LCA and EPD in Public Procument - Discussion session
Life Cycle Assessment and Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) have long been pointed to as tools to be used in green public procurement (GPP), but doing so in practice is challenging. How can such information be requested without breaking some of the general principles for public procurement, for example non-discrimination and transparency? EPDs are now widely used within the construction sector to provide environmental information; however using EPDs in GPP is still not common and there is a need to share experiences and practices.
This session should include six shorter presentations providing different perspectives on this issue and feature a panel discussion.
