Sustainability, Corruption, Growth, Environmental procurement, Ethics

Module Description:

Procurement is called sustainable when organisations put in place processes whereby they meet their needs for goods, services, works and utilities in a way that achieves "value for money on a whole life basis" in terms of generating benefits not only to the organisation, but also to society and economy, whilst minimizing damage to the environment.

This module explores the key concepts of sustainable procurement and explains how environmental and social considerations can be applied for the achievement of sustainable development objectives by giving a better understanding of how public procurement can contribute to more innovative activity in industry and to the growth or even creation of markets for innovative products and services, in line with internationally-recognised principles/standards for public procurement.
It also explores the key concepts of corruption , social and CSR in procurement and explains how these can be applied in order to impart competence to the participants in using the potential of procurement for the achievement of sustainable development objectives. Ethics and Green procurement module takes centre stage as a key indicator of governments' commitment to sustainable development.
