UNEP Global Review of Sustainable Public Procurement released

15 June 2017

The United Nations Environment Programme has released its review of the last five years of global procurement activity, building on the first edition released in 2013. Published in the context of the 10YFP Sustainable Public Procurement Programme, the report aims to track the global progress of SPP and to deepen the collective understanding of the current barriers, needs, opportunities and innovations to sustainable procurement.

SPP activities of ICLEI and the Procura+ network feature in the review, including an interview with ICLEI's Global Sustainable Procurement Centre Director, Mark Hidson. The city of Ghent, a Procura+ network participant, also features as one of four good practice case studies, charting its SPP activities including its successful introduction of key performance indicators and clear SPP targets.

The report identifies emerging topics and trends in SPP and considers the role of international organisations in supporting its implementation.
