WHY SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT?

Procurement makes up a significant proportion of public expenditure. According to the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), an average of 15 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) is spent through public procurement systems each year, amounting to over $10 trillion.

By introducing sustainable criteria, an organization makes sure that the products and services bought achieve value for money and generate environmental, societal and economic benefits.

WHAT ARE OUR GOALS?

As leading cities, we want to accelerate the implementation of sustainable procurement and procurement of innovation worldwide. We form a unified voice within the international community to raise awareness and foster sustainable development.

Our aim is to meet, share and develop capabilities to implement sustainable purchasing practices, as well as to help develop a supportive political framework for implementation.

By taking smart procurement decisions, we can reduce negative environmental impacts, achieve financial efficiency, encourage innovation, boost green jobs, and strengthen labor rights.
