Description

Description The Partnership for Procurement and Green Growth is a multistakeholder partnership of the public sector, private sector and business representative groups. It is a collaborative action group that has been established to push forward public procurement debate and practice, and position it as a cross-cutting strategy for supporting green and economic growth. The Partnership exists to drive forward the agenda on sustainable procurement - specifically, how procurement and procurement frameworks can be designed and utilized to spur innovation and achieve green growth.
Objectives The Partnership desires to:

- Anticipate normative issues—Keeping abreast with market developments, the Partnership seeks to be at the cutting edge of procurement issues and activities by anticipating trends before they arrive in order to stay ahead of the curve. - Demonstrating through experience—Operating at the cutting edge dictates breaking new operational ground, and the Partnership intends to learn by doing and build a reputation based on action and on-the-ground experience to support and test its positions on normative issues. - Share best practice—Collaboration and transparency are at the heart of any multidisciplinary partnership, and, sharing these principles, the Partnership will actively share and publish its work, thereby becoming a significant source for sustainable procurement-related content.
