Sustainable Public Procurement and eco-labelling in the Republic of Moldova

Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) changes the way in which our governments purchase goods and services, thereby driving markets towards sustainability and innovation.

The Republic of Moldova has been implementing SPP since 2014 with support from the EU-funded programmes EaP GREEN and EU4Environment:

  • Governmental Decree on SPP drafted.
  • Progress report on SPP with identified list of activities prepared.
  • Products for SPP pilot tenders prioritized (with a focus on organic food, isolated windows and doors, computers, cars and papers) and technical specifications and sustainability criteria elaborated.
  • Assessment on market readiness for SPP tenders prepared.
  • Assessment and Roadmap on eco-labelling conducted.
  • Regulation on eco-labelling aligned with the EU Regulation on eco-labelling drafted, discussed at the public hearings and approved; National eco-label designed.


A number of awareness raising events were carried out:

  • High-level Dialogue on SPP (22 participants, including high-level officials);
