Green & Sustainable Procurement & Procurement Procedures for Development Partners Training
Green & Sustainable Procurement & Procurement Procedures for Development Partners Course.
Green & Sustainable procurement is about taking social and environmental factors into consideration
alongside financial factors in making procurement decisions. It involves looking beyond the traditional
economic parameters and making decisions based on the whole life cost, the associated risks, measures of
success and implications for society and the environment. Making decisions in this way requires setting
procurement into the broader strategic context including value for money, performance management,
corporate and community priorities. This course is designed to solidify and build on your understanding
of how to integrate sustainability in the supply chain in order to promote sustainability issues via key
control points of the procurement cycle.
More specifically, the course will cover how sustainability affects activities like specification
development, tender criteria, proposal evaluation, contract award and whole-life costing techniques.
Delegates will receive practical guidance on how to implement sustainability themes across these different
areas, as well as understand how to proactively manage sustainability across a range of expenditure
Aim & Challenge
Traditional procurement has focused upon value for money considerations. The aim and challenge of
Green & sustainable procurement is to integrate environmental and social considerations into the
procurement process, with the goal of reducing adverse impacts upon health, social conditions and the
environment, thereby saving valuable costs for public sector organizations and the community at large
