EC LCC tools

EC LCC tools

2018 - 2019

The European Commission encourages public authorities to green their purchases. Among the tools promoted by the European Commission in the Communication "Public Procurement for a Better Environment" (2008) to achieve that, are life cycle costing (LCC) tools that could contribute to deliver financial savings as well as reductions in the environmental impact of purchases made by public authorities.

To increase the uptake of LCC considerations in tenders throughout the European Union, the European Commission would like to provide practitioners with harmonised, widely agreed LCC methodologies and tools and has published the present call for tenders.

Ecoinstitut SCCL in a joint tender together with ICLEI (and relevant subcontractors) will work on LCC tools in 2018 and 2019. A public consultation on the tool(s) is carried out in cooperation with the Procura+ European Sustainable Procurement Network Interest Group on LCC.
