For this purpose 13 ecological principles are elaborated in checklists which consist of a list of practical design criteria. These checklists offer practical guidelines for the consideration of all relevant criteria. An ABC rating scheme is added to each checklist to give an indication of the expected environmental relevance of each criterion for a specific design. 4. Green Procurement Green procurement means buying products or services with a reduced environmental impact. This can be achieved in a number of ways and may mean looking at product characteristics such as energy efficiency, durability, packaging and/or the environmental impacts in a life cycle perspective.
