Green Public Procurement National Action Plan: 2019-2025

Federal Government

Malta’s Waste Management Plan 2014-2020 identifies GPP as a tool towards creating resources from waste. The Commission’s Circular Economy Action Plan also identified GPP as a tool for promoting the creation of a market for secondary resources. This dovetails with this Government’s intention to amend the Environment Protection Act to include provisions aimed at transiting Malta towards a more circular economy. GPP contributes to this agenda by establishing criteria to promote resource efficiency and lessen the environmental impact of the good and services procured by Government.
