Guide méthodologique:La mise en oeuvre des indicateurs achats responsables/ Methodological Guide to Implementing SPP Indicators 2017
Le Guide méthodologique est une récente étude présentée en juin 2017 par l’ObsAR (L’Observatoire des Achats Responsables) dont l’objet était d’évaluer auprès des acheteurs publics et privés la pertinence et la pratique des 14 indicateurs définis par l’ObsAR en 2016. Basée sur des pratiques actuelles avérées, la liste des 14 indicateurs dessine une approche du reporting à la fois pragmatique et adaptée à tout type de périmètre Achats. L'ObsAR est une association qui a pour objectif d’échanger des bonnes pratiques concernant les Achats responsables.
Webinar on How to successfully implement a sustainable procurement programme? Lessons learned from 6 programmes around the world
In the past 10 years, sustainable procurement programmes and networks have flourished across the globe as they respond to a growing need of sustainability and procurement professionals, especially in public organisations: what are the great ideas out there? What are others doing? What do best practices look like? And, most of all, how can we work together and collaborate to achieve our sustainable procurement objectives?
Sustainable Choice commissioned Planet Procurement to benchmark 6 successful sustainable procurement programmes in order to identify best practices and lessons learned:
1. Sustainable choice – Local Government NSW;
2. 3AR - Association Aquitaine des Achats Publics Responsables, based in France;
3. SPLC - Sustainable Purchasing Leadership Council, based in the United States;
4. Procura + Network, a European initiative;
5. RGO - Réseau Grand Ouest Commande Publique et Développement Durable, based in France;
6. APE - Acquisti Pubblici Ecologici, based in the North of Italy.
The objectives of the webinar were to:
1. Share lessons learned of the 6 programmes that were part of the benchmarking study;
2. Build knowledge around successful sustainable procurement programmes;
3. Create connections between sustainable procurement programme managers.
Product-service systems (PSS) are an innovative business approach that shifts the traditional business focus from selling physical products only (e.g. a washing machine) to selling a mix of products and services (e.g. cleaning services) that are jointly capable of meeting specific client demand (clean clothes). The key idea behind PSS is that consumers do not demand products per se, but are seeking the utility provided by products and services. One value-added of PSS lies in their potential to decouple consumption from economic growth, as they offer the possibility of meeting more needs with lower material and energy requirements.
This technical report examines the nexus between product-service systems and sustainable public procurement, drawing together international experience. The aim of this report is, in particular, to demonstrate how product-service systems can be used by governments in the context of sustainable public procurement (SPP) policies and initiatives, thus contributing to a more resource-efficient, low-carbon and inclusive green economy. Some examples of the use of product-service systems by government organizations are given in the case studies in Annex I.
This technical report was produced by working group 3A of the 10YFP SPP Programme.
The SPP impact study is a joint project of UNEP and of the Swiss-led Marrakech Task Force on SPP. The study aims at demonstrating the benefits of sustainable public procurement on developing, developed and in transition countries. It also seeks to initiate a methodology to quantify the sustainable
development and market impacts of SPP activities: increased availability of sustainable goods and
services, strengthening of productive capacities and export capacities, employment creation, improved labor conditions, reduced energy and water consumption, reduced GHG emissions, increased competitiveness of green industries, uptake of green technologies, more efficient use of natural resources, etc.
