Criteria for tendering

The baubook green procurement information platform details the criteria for an ecologically optimised construction tender from "ÖkoKauf Wien" and the service package "Sustainable building in the community".

The criteria catalogue was compiled by the IBO on behalf of the partner Interreg IVa project "Service package – Sustainable building for communities" in coordination with the criteria catalogues of "ÖkoKauf Wien".

"ÖkoKauf Wien” is the city's ecological and sustainable procurement programme with which (construction) products have been procured, installed or used as environmentally friendly as possible since 1998.

The ”Sustainable building for communities” service package from the environmental association (Vorarlberg), Energieinstitut Vorarlberg and SPEKTRUM Bauphysik & Bauökologie GmbH provides assistance for ecological building and renovation in the community.

natureplus has established a service to anchor the requirements for sustainable products in tendering texts in both the public and private planning sector. The tendering guides contain the sustainability requirements for several interior product groups, specifically for surface coatings, wood-based materials, wall paints, insulating materials and plasters, which result from environmental quality labels such as natureplus®, the "Blue Angel", Emicode and others. They are continuously updated and advanced.

The natureplus tendering guides can be downloaded as a PDF or text document here.

The WECOBIS Planning and Tendering Guide is intended to support planners in evaluating and effectively implementing material-ecological requirements during the planning stage. The module can be used to select building materials and products throughout the entire planning process. It provides the knowledge and tools to efficiently evaluate building materials in terms of sustainability, health and environmental impact and to set the relevant requirements for the building products in planning and tendering.
