Procurement of recycled asphalt for road resurfacing in Hamburg

Action leader(s)

City of Hamburg (Germany)


In Hamburg, green public procurement principles are included in the City’s overarching procurement policy. Additional environmental contract requirements are imposed by the City specifically for road construction tenders.

Hamburg has taken a significant step forward to encourage an increase of recycling rates in construction materials by establishing an online exchange for soil, debris and construction materials that aims to support procurement of recycled asphalt.
