  • Published on December 15, 2015
Even though Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) is now recognized as an effective tool to improve consumption and production patterns, a standardized and comprehensive methodology for measuring and communicating the benefits of these programs remains elusive. The purpose of this report is therefore to provide the ever increasing number of governmental organizations engaged in SPP with a step-by-step guide to planning, measuring and communicating on the benefits they are creating through the implementation of their sustainable procurement programmes and activities. This report includes a Baseline Review on “Measuring and Communicating the Benefits of SPP”, a Guidance Framework and supporting methodologies, indicators and recommendations for implementation. Private sector organizations engaged in sustainable purchasing activities should also find the report useful.
