@dokat One method would be to use a Calculation Group. Another method would be to use FORMAT. Still another method would be to pivot your first column in Power Query using your second column as the value and then you can set the data types correctly for each column (preferred).

Measure =
  SWITCH(MAX([Attribute]),
    "GP %",FORMAT(MAX([Value]),"Percent"),
    "Contribution",FORMAT(MAX([Value]),"Percent")
    [Value] & ""
  )
