Translations of the EU’s Green Procurement Policy now available

December 22, 2020

The new Green Procurement Policy (GPP) criteria for imaging equipment applies to printers, copiers, multifunctional devices and scanners, is now available in all 23 EU languages on the Europa.eu website.

The new Green Procurement Policy (GPP) criteria for imaging equipment applies to printers, copiers, multifunctional devices and scanners, enabling public authorities to endorse sustainable printing by lowering the environmental impact of devices purchased, and favouring the use of remanufactured cartridges.

The new criteria, which also includes requirements for printers’ plastics, chemicals and emissions, have been in development by the EU’s scientific body – the Joint Research Centre (JRC) – since 2018, and the list was approved by the EU Commission in late July 2020.

Public bodies are being invited to use the guide, which is currently voluntary, when they solicit offers for imaging equipment and consumables through tenders.

You can download the translated documents here.

In September, ETIRA, the European Toner and Inkjet Remanufacturers Association, welcomed new criteria and Javier Martinez, President of ETIRA, told The Recycler “We have been lobbying the EU for two years on this policy and participating in the development process while insisting that cartridge reuse is a vital part of the new criteria.” Adding “The introduction of this new list of criteria within the European Union is an encouraging step forward towards a more sustainable future for the printing and ink and toner cartridge industry.“
