Best Practices for Sustainable Procurement OECD

The OECD has launched a new agenda on public procurement reform to support countries in creating an overarching approach to procurement that enables efficiency, fosters growth and accomplishes their strategic goals. As part of this agenda, the OECD replaced the 2008 Recommendation of the Council on Enhancing Integrity in Public Procurement1 by the Recommendation of the Council on Public Procurement [C(2015)2 and C/M(2015)4, Item 28] , aiming to encourage a balanced approach to the use of procurement as a smart governance tool to achieve economy, efficiency and secondary policy objectives. Green public procurement (GPP), i.e.public purchasing of products and services which are less environmentally damaging2 when taking into account their whole life cycle,3 is increasingly used by countries to achieve such policy objectivesin the area of environmental protection.
