Procurement, Innovation & Green Growth: the story continues
This report builds on the existing body of work that supports the case for green public procurement, to further identify the linkages between procurement and green growth and discuss the enabling environment that would see public procurement serve as a trigger for green industrial innovation, expansion and growth.
What follows is a brief discussion on the role of procurement within the green growth paradigm, where an introduction to key concepts is followed by feature case studies that present the varying experiences of industry and the public sector in applying procurement to achieve green growth aims. Finally, the paper concludes by offering observations on possible implications for policy and areas where further investigation is required to enable procurement to serve as a more potent trigger for green innovation and growth.
