Sustainable Public Procurement

Organizing partners

Office of the Attorney-General of the Federative Republic of Brazil
Tribunal de Contas da União (Brazilian Federal Court of Audit) and Ministério do Planejamento (Ministry of Planning, Budget and Management)

Introduction

Sustainable Public Procurement is meant to allow preferencial treatment in bidding processes for socio-environmentally correct products with less environmental impact and lower risk to human health. It is related to the acquisition of goods, materials and services whose manufacture, use and disposal incorporate socio-environmentally sustainable standards. Thus, the policy objective is to spread the links between sustainability and government hiring, generating positive impact on the marketplace and promoting new production sectors - the so-called "green economy" ( United Nations Environment Programme - UNEP). The objective of the seminar is to present the policy from the perspective of the formulator entity (Ministério do Planejamento), the legal entity (Advocacia-Geral da União) and the audit organ (Tribunal de Contas da União).
