WHY SUSTAINABLE PROCUREMENT?

Procurement makes up a significant proportion of public expenditure. According to the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS), an average of 15 percent of global gross domestic product (GDP) is spent through public procurement systems each year, amounting to over $10 trillion.

By introducing sustainable criteria, an organization makes sure that the products and services bought achieve value for money and generate environmental, societal and economic benefits.

WHAT ARE OUR GOALS?

As leading cities, we want to accelerate the implementation of sustainable procurement and procurement of innovation worldwide. We form a unified voice within the international community to raise awareness and foster sustainable development.

Our aim is to meet, share and develop capabilities to implement sustainable purchasing practices, as well as to help develop a supportive political framework for implementation.

By taking smart procurement decisions, we can reduce negative environmental impacts, achieve financial efficiency, encourage innovation, boost green jobs, and strengthen labor rights.

Auckland contributes to climate target by procuring electric vehicles

18 July 2018

Auckland Council is reducing its vehicle fleet and going green with the purchase of 10 new electric vehicles (EVs). The procurement will bring the total EV’s owned by the Global Lead City Network on Sustainable Procurement participant up to 14 – including the mayor’s own EV.


Mayor Phil Goff says, “The council has reduced the size of its vehicle fleet by 57 vehicles in the last year and replaced old petrol cars with electric vehicles. It saves ratepayers $600,000 and sends a clear signal that we are serious about reducing emissions and protecting our environment”.


Auckland Council will continue to reduce the size of its fleet over the coming three years and progressively add electric vehicles to replace aging petrol cars.


Mayor Goff added: “Climate change is a defining issue of our time and transport accounts for around 40 per cent of Auckland’s emissions. Reductions in the council’s fleet and the purchase of electric vehicles contribute to our commitment to reduce our carbon emissions under the Paris Accord of 2015”.


The purchase of the EVs by Auckland Council follows Auckland Transport, the public body responsible for all of the region’s transport services, acquiring 20 EVs earlier in the year. Auckland Transport has also committed to reducing its fleet size by 15 per cent.
