  • Published on March 19, 2024

The Consumer Information Programme of the One Planet network (OPN) and the EcoAdvance project, in partnership with the Sustainable Public Procurement Programme of the One Planet network are launching a call for proposals. Its main objective is to increase the use of ecolabels (ISO 14024) and promote sustainable public procurement (SPP) as tools to improve climate mitigation, biodiversity, and resource protection in the building and construction sector.  


Through this call for proposals, the Consumer Information Programme and the EcoAdvance project, in partnership with the Sustainable public procurement programme, will support initiatives from developing countries or emerging economies (except the five target countries in Latin America) working in the building and construction sector to: 

  • apply good practices related to the use of Ecolabels in SPP,  
  • develop ambitious ecolabels criteria (linked to climate change, biodiversity protection, and resource conservation),  
  • improve policy and legal frameworks,  
  • enhance knowledge management and increase engagement of stakeholders. 

This initiative is receiving financial support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV) through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and has been launched at the  Buildings and Climate Global Forum thanks to the support of the French Government.

Deadline for submission of proposals: 12 April 2024 

Notification of selection: May 2024 

Start of activities: July/August 2024
