Green Procurement training
The Center partnered with the Super-efficient Equipment and Appliance Deployment (SEAD) initiative to provide this webinar-based training on key findings from the recently published SEAD Guide for Monitoring and Evaluating (M&E) Green Public Procurement Programs. The presentation included an overview of current practices, highlighted international practices, and summarized lessons to improve the effectiveness of procurement monitoring and evaluation practices. Representatives from South Korea and the United States presented case studies that show leadership and innovation in implementing M&E systems.
Over the last several years, an increasing number of governments have begun implementing Green Public Procurement (GPP) and Energy Efficient Procurement (EEP) programs. These programs can demonstrate leadership, reduce the environment impacts of products, mitigate climate change, improve resource efficiency, reduce energy use, and encourage environmentally sustainable economic growth. This guide will serve as a resource for policymakers as they continue to develop and implement these programs and track progress against set targets and objectives.
Key lessons for policymakers from the SEAD M&E guide include:
- Embed M&E requirements in policy when the policy is designed
- Create M&E systems that utilize existing processes and tracking systems and require available data
- Communicate results through easy to understand indicators
- Increase compliance through economic and/or reputational incentives and by integrating EEP/GPP into existing management systems.
