The SuPP-Urb (Sustainable Public Procurement in Urban Administrations in China) project success- fully introduced sustainable public procurement practices in the three Chinese target cities Lanzhou, Qinhuangdao and Tianjin. The lessons learned show that it is possible in a short timeframe to achieve tangible results and improvements in environmen- tal performance through changing procurement practices.
