Abstract: Concept of green public procurement is promoted by the European Union and it is a voluntary tool applicable in public administration that can bring environmental, social and economic benefits both at European and national level. The paper analyses EU and Slovak legislative framework of the green public procurement and Europeanisation of the Slovak practice. Normative analyses was used as a method to assess the current EU and Slovak legal norms regulating the concept of green public procurement and mutual interconnections have been identified between European and Slovak legal institutes. The findings show that the Slovak republic already has initial experience with green public procurement implementation and the impact of the EU had been proven. Directives dominate as legal acts in the EU legal framework of green public procurement. The EU legislative framework is based especially on a possibility to implement the concept of green public procurement. However, obligatory norms are gradually being promoted. This fact can predict progressive change de lege ferenda and the need for flexible adaptation of public administration systems in the Member states. Evidence from the Slovak practice shows direct transposition of provisions and further development of green public procurement with the focus on the Slovak priorities.
