The German Federal Government wants to further expand its efforts in climate protection. In September 2021, the Federal Cabinet adopted a new administrative regulation on the procurement of climate-friendly services and products (German only: AVV Klima). Already since 2008, there has been a requirement for public procurement, according to which “the highest available efficiency class" in terms of energy consumption labelling was a condition for purchase. The previous regulation has now been further developed into an "Administrative Regulation on the Procurement of Climate-Friendly Services". However, energy efficiency remains one of the most important factors. The new regulation came into force on 01 January 2022.
