Sustainable Public Procurement: Call to Action

Dear Sustainable Public Procurement community,

The One Planet Network Sustainable Public Procurement Programme calls upon the global public procurement community to leverage purchasing power to respond and recover responsibly from the COVID-19 pandemic.

In particular, we propose nine concrete actions for the public procurement community: explore the “Call to Action”

Call to action:

Next steps for the procurement community to contribute to a responsible recovery

The disruption of the status quo provides an opportunity to fundamentally shift the way we consume and produce globally and move towards economic, environmental and social sustainability. To do so, the One Planet Network SPP Programme calls upon the procurement community to support change of the procurement system including legislative reform to enable the transition to a sustainable and circular economy.

In particular, the One Planet Network SPP Programme calls upon organisations, companies, governments and procurement officials to:

  1. Use procurement as an important lever for CO2 savings by applying life-cycle costing, shadow pricing or similar techniques. For instance, in construction the pre-investments for savings are recommended to be set at about 1% of the tender budget. This investment will result in cost savings over the whole lifetime of the structure.
  2. Develop and implement national SPP actions plans inclusive of ambitious SPP targets, including environmental as well as social aspects, and put in place monitoring tools to measure progress. Countries are recommended to set a minimum target of 30% SPP for the most impactful procurement categories by 2030 and 50% by 2040.
  3. Where SPP action plans are already implemented, ensure that they are amended to contribute to the sustainability of the post-COVID recovery plans.
  4. Join the One Planet Network programmes
  5. Contribute to the One Planet Multi-Partner Trust Fund for SDG 12
  6. Share your SPP initiatives and best practices on the One Planet Network website
  7. Join one of the sector initiatives of the SPP Programme on Health, ICT, Construction, Monitoring or Circular Procurement or initiate your own group for responsible procurement
  8. As a One Planet Network partner, report on your SPP projects

Join us, the One Planet Network community of sustainable public procurement practitioners, to help drive green and more sustainable recoveries through better use of public funds.

Humanity is faced with a challenge unprecedented in recent history. Approaching one year since the outbreak, the COVID-19 pandemic has impacted countless lives worldwide and it leaves a lasting impact on individuals, world economies and society as a whole. What are key tools for responsible response and recovery mechanisms? Public procurement is one of them. Making responsible and  strategic decisions on how public money is spent is key to creating economic, societal and environmental value.

In addition, different sectors face distinct challenges, but also unique opportunities to contribute to a responsible recovery, which is why the Sustainable Public Procurement Programme also has collated suggestions for a selection of high-impact sectors, including health care, construction, textiles, plastic and more.

This is a joint effort by the SPP Programmes Co-Leads ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, the Governments of China (Environmental Development Centre of the Ministry of Ecology and Environment of China) and the Netherlands (Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management) and the UN Environment Programme, as well as 16 Multistakeholder Advisory Committee (MAC) members from across the world. 

We invite you to visit our website, reach out for more information and to share the Call to Action within your networks, so that we collectively can recover from the pandemic in a more sustainable and responsible way.
