Green Public Procurement for cloud computing services

     

General recommendations, a set of public procurement criteria and a set of relevant best practices for the public procurement of sustainable cloud computing services will be produced. Sustainable in this context refers to “more energy efficient”. The recommendations will be applicable at the EU level and will also look at the specificity of the EU regions, as identified in the analysis and modelling across the EU-28. The recommendations, criteria and best practices will target public procurers in the EU member states and will be meant as a supportive tool for the preparation of public procurement tenders for cloud services.
