According to the data related to the promoting of the green public procurement from Taiwan EPA in 2018, the achievement rate has been over 95% every year since 2013. Take the data in 2018 for example, the achievement rate of green public procurement topped out at 98.4%; however, compared to the data from Public Construction, the amount of the public procurement in 2018 cost a total of NT$1.7644 trillion (e.g. construction, product, and service, etc.), which the public green procurement only cost a total of NT$9.507 billion. It accounts for 0.5% in the public procurement, so it’s easy to learn that there’s still room for improvement; on the other hand, the expected growth rate of the green public procurement may be limited because it has almost topped out at 100% for 3 years. Therefore, we regard that it can start with increasing the green product category, developing the new sort of evaluation criteria, and providing more incentives to the green product procurement. Hope that there will be obvious growth rate of the total amount of the green procurement in the future.
The following have listed 5 key points of the project work: (1) Consolidate the evaluation criteria of green product from international, domestic, and private institutions, then propose the recommendation of upgrading the performance of green procurement.(2)Assess whether life cycle assessment is available or not for evaluating the green product and collect and analyze the related software of abroad life cycle assessment.(3)Collect and analyze the information about internationally product category rule, and propose to regulate the product category rule of 2 green product category.(4)Identify whether critical review of product carbon footprint can assess the review process of green product or not.(5)Analyze the performance of green procurement, and propose the strategy about upgrading the green procurement by questionnaire of green performance evaluation. Hope that the amount of the green procurement can be redoubled after 2023 under the condition that it only accounts for less than 1% of the total amount of government procurement so far.
