Objectives and Scope
The goal of this Preliminary Study is to review the overall status of the current Green Public Procurement and eco-labelling practices in four Asian countries, including Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam. The study also articulates the current strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats to ensure GPP is successfully implemented by the national governments of these four countries, and lays the groundwork for future interventions to encourage GPP.

The Preliminary Study represents the first step in a larger project that aims to build GPP capacity of national governments in Asia-Pacific region through policy consultation and technical assistance tailored to the needs of partner countries. The project builds on the findings of the Asia Pacific Roadmap of Sustainable Consumption and Production1 and will be implemented in line with the work plan of the 10YFP SPP Programme (Work area 1: provide direct support for SPP implementation) under the guidance of the advisory committee comprised of Korea Environment Industry and Technology Institute, UN Environment Asia Pacific Office, UN Environment Economy Division, and ICLEI Europe Office.

The Preliminary Study has tried to cover aspects of GPP relevant to promoting SCP in four countries, including (1) public procurement process in the country; (2) the country’s experience with GPP; (3) the use of Type 1 eco-labels in public procurement; and (4) the obstacles, opportunities and needs for the implementation of GPP.
