UN Environment hosts a workshop on the revision of its Sustainable Public Procurement Implementation Guidelines

17 October 2017

On the 11th and 12th of October UN Environment hosted a workshop on the revision of the UN Environment Sustainable Public Procurement Approach at its premises in Paris. The objective was to collect feedback of public procurement professionals on the use of the UN Environment SPP Implementation Guidelines. National experts and government representatives from six countries gathered and shared success stories, lessons learned and challenges encountered in the framework of the implementation of three projects:  SPPEL (Vietnam, Morocco, India), PAGE (Mongolia) and EaP Green (Ukraine, Moldova) projects. The outcomes of the workshop will inform the development of a revised set of SPP Implementation Guidelines. These guidelines aim to guide decision-makers and public procurement practitioners on how to effectively pave the way for a successful implementation of SPP at the national level.

We thank all the workshop participants for their active engagement and valuable inputs during these two days. A second workshop will take place in Bogotá, Colombia, on 24-26 October to gather further inputs and feedback from countries in the Latin American and Caribbean region. UN Environment looks forward to sharing the revised implementation guidelines with the 10YFP network and the wider SPP community at the beginning of 2018.

  Matinée de réflexion sur les achats publics durables (APD) – Lancement d’un nouveau Réseau francophone sur les APD.

A morning of reflection on Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) – Launch of the Francophone Network on SPP.

Le 6 juillet 2017, une centaine de professionnels francophones des achats publics de différents ministères, agences et entités publiques, se sont réunis à Paris pour une matinée de réflexion autour du thème des achats publics durables co-organisée par l’ONU Environnement et la Direction des achats de l’Etat français.

A cette occasion, un nouveau Réseau francophone sur les achats publics durables a été officiellement lancé. Il vise à encourager l’échange d’information et d’outils sur les APD, promouvoir le partage des connaissances sur les achats durables et renforcer leur mise en œuvre dans le domaine public. Ce réseau s’inscrit dans le cadre du Programme pour les Achats Publics Durables du Cadre décennal de programmes sur la consommation et la production durables (10YFP) des Nations Unies. Le Réseau francophone sur les achats publics durables s’adresse à toute organisation publique et aux experts francophones qui souhaitent s’engager dans une dynamique de coopération et d’échange dans le domaine des achats publics durables. Pour plus d’informations sur ce réseau, l’invitation à rejoindre le Réseau francophone est disponible ici.

Après des remarques préliminaires par M. Michel Grévoul, directeur des achats de l’État, et par M. Tim Kasten, directeur adjoint de la Division Economie de l’ONU Environnement, M. Farid Yaker, administrateur du programme sur les APD à l’ONU Environnement, a présenté les principales conclusions de l’étude récemment publiée : le Panorama mondial 2017 sur les achats publics durables . Cliquez ici pour télécharger la présentation en français du rapport.

Les thèmes suivants ont été abordés dans le cadre de la table ronde animée par M. Yaker :

1. Comment accroitre l’engagement des élus et des décideurs publics en faveur des achats durables ?

2. Comment résoudre au mieux la tension entre la performance économique des achats et les objectifs de durabilité ?

3. Comment mieux organiser la fonction achat pour qu'elle soit alignée avec les objectifs de durabilité ?

M. Jacques Schramm, Président du groupe de travail ISO PC 277 et Président d’A2 Consulting, a ensuite présenté la nouvelle norme ISO 20400 « Achats responsables – Lignes directrices ». La norme ISO 20400 est un nouveau standard publié en avril 2017 qui donne des lignes directrices sur l’intégration de la notion de durabilité dans les processus d’achats des organisations. Dans ses remarques de clôture, Mme Mieke Pieters, ancienne directrice achats responsables de la ville de Gand en Belgique, s’est félicitée des progrès qui ont été faits dans le domaine des achats durables au cours des sept dernières années. Les priorités sont désormais les suivantes : encourager le dialogue entre les acheteurs publics et les fournisseurs,  mesurer et communiquer les impacts des APD, prendre en compte dans la mesure du possible le coût du cycle de vie et non plus uniquement le prix d’achat dans les processus d’achats, exploiter les plateformes de partage des connaissances et de bonnes pratiques pour encourager l’innovation, comme le Réseau francophone sur les APD nouvellement lancé.

En outre, le Panorama mondial 2017 propose l’analyse d’un questionnaire administré à plus de 200 personnes issues de 186 organisations et de 62 pays, permettant de suivre les progrès en matière d’achats durables d‘entités publiques et privées.

New flagship report: 2017 Global Review of Sustainable Public Procurement

6 June 2017

The 10YFP Sustainable Public Procurement Programme has just released the 2017 Global Review of Sustainable Public Procurement.

 

This report examines the state of sustainable public procurement (SPP) policies and practices undertaken by national governments worldwide in the last five years. The 10YFP Sustainable Public Procurement Programme committed to conducting a regular review of the state of SPP implementation as part of its work plan. Building on the findings of the first edition of the Global Review published in 2013 and on research conducted between 2015 and 2016 among 41 national governments and more than 200 SPP stakeholders, this report aims to track the progress made and deepen the collective understanding of the current barriers, needs, opportunities and innovations in SPP.

 

The report can be downloaded from the Knowledge Hub or by clicking here.

A webinar to present the main findings of the report was held in April and can be viewed on our youtube channel.

 

This research is complemented by the supplement titled “Factsheets on Sustainable Public Procurement in National Governments”, which includes forty country factsheets detailing the SPP policy frameworks, priorities and implementation activities in place in each country. The supplement will be released shortly and be made available in the Knowledge Hub.

 

For any questions regarding this report you are welcome to contact us at 10yfpspp@unep.org.

Webinar presenting the 2017 Global Review

20 April 2017

The 10YFP Sustainable Public Procurement Programme hosted a webinar on 20 April 2017 to present the upcoming report 2016 Global Review of Sustainable Public Procurement. During this webinar Farid Yaker (UN Environment), Aure Adell (Ecoinstitut SCCL) and Dr.Anastasia O'Rourke (Industrial Economics Inc.) presented the main findings of the study and responded to questions from the audience.

The second edition of the Global Review examines the state of SPP policies and practices undertaken by national governments worldwide in the last five years. Building on the findings of the first Global Review published in 2013 and on research conducted between 2015 and 2016 among 41 national governments and more than 200 SPP stakeholders, the report aims to track the progress made and deepen the collective understanding of the current barriers, needs, opportunities and innovations in SPP. 

The 2017 Global Review highlights how SP activities are on the rise in all types of organizations, including local governments, non-profit and private sector companies, both large and small. However, considerable work still needs to be done before sustainability considerations, pertaining to both the environmental and the socio-economic dimensions, become regular criteria within bidspecifications and contracts. One of the key takeaways from the study is that, to be successful, SPP requires a solid policy foundation, top-level leadership and active private sector engagement. The further spread of SPP practices can in turn become a strategic lever to drive the shift towards the achievement of more sustainable consumption and production patterns and more sustainable global economy.

The 2017 Global Review of SPP will be released in May and will be available in our Knowledge Hub.

The PowerPoint presentation used during the webinar is available here and the recording of the webinar can be viewed on our YouTube channel
