WHY SPP?

BENEFITS OF SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT

Sustainable procurement can have powerful benefits - for public authorities, the environment and wider society.

"Across Europe, on average, public authorities spend about 20% of the EU Gross Domestic
Product (GDP) purchasing goods, works and services. That represents enormous leverage,
and it means the public authorities wield tremendous market power."

Karmenu Vella, EU Commissioner for Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries
