Ghent featured in 10YFP Programme Global Review of SPP

25 July 2017

Procura+ participant Ghent has been featured as a best practice case study in a Global Review of sustainable public procurement published by UNEP, involving ICLEI and KEITI. Charting the implementation of its Procurement Strategy, SPP principles and targets, the Ghent case study exemplifies Ghent's 10% year-on-year increase in contracts awarded to the social-economy sector and a 10% reduction in CO² emissions for deliveries in 2016.

The Global Review covers the last five years of global procurement activity, building on the first edition released in 2013. Published in the context of the 10YFP Sustainable Public Procurement Programme, the report aims to track the global progress of SPP and to deepen the collective understanding of the current barriers, needs, opportunities and innovations to sustainable procurement.

SPP activities involving ICLEI and the Procura+ network feature throughout the review, including an interview with ICLEI's Global Sustainable Procurement Centre Director, Mark Hidson.
