Green procurement is an essential practice that involves the purchase of environmentally friendly goods and services. It has been adopted as a strategy for reducing environmental impact of procurement activities. This is possible with adoption of ecologically responsible business practices like demand of recyclable products, energy efficient systems, clean technology & fuels etc. With the effects of climate change becoming more apparent, it is important to adopt sustainable practices and green procurement is step in that direction. Almost all OECD countries have developed strategies to support green public procurement and 69% of these countries are measuring the results of these policies and strategies. Government around the world are taking steps towards sustainability and green procurement is a vital component of their environmental policies.

Current quantum of annual public procurement is estimated at about US$ 600 Billion in India, which is likely to increase exponentially as India seeks to become high-income economy by 2047. Public Procurement thus can be used for greening the economy. Also, as per the recent policy announced, India now stands committed to reducing “emission intensity” of its Gross Domestic Products (GDP) by 45% by the year 2030 from 2005 levels.

UNEP (United Nations Environment Program) is also partnering with the World Bank to technically support this training.

Objective of the program

As part of the five day training module, the program will demonstrate drafting green procurement policies, rules, guidelines etc. and also reflect appropriate procurement strategy to maximize Green Public Procurement outcome. It will give practical and reasonable steps of how to integrate green criteria in all stages of procurement cycle and also highlight the application of technology in Green Public Procurement. Since more and more executive decisions are to be based not only on becoming “greener” but also to reduce cost, therefore Cost-Benefit analysis and appropriate decision making would be part of Green Procurement Training.
