New publication explores public and private sector procurement in Brazil

A new publication on sustainable procurement, Sustainable Procurement: the power of public and private consumption for a green and inclusive economy, has been released in Portuguese. The publication has been developed by ICLEI SAMS in partnership with Fundação Getúlio Vargas (FGV), a well known university in Brazil.

The document aims to address the synergies between both public and private sectors and explores ways in which the private sector can foster innovation and the inclusion of SMEs in Brazil.

It is not a manual or guide, but a publication with the objective of reaching a larger and more general public, including the private sector and academia. A successful launch event took place earlier this month.
