The role of the Private Sector in Sustainable Public Procurement Project (SPP)

The private sector’s role in the development and promotion of sustainable public procurement is very critical. The reason being that, it is the major producer and supplier of goods and services to government. Private sector businesses often supply the computers, paper, air conditioners, furniture, consultancy services, road works, etc. that the government procures.

Should the government take the lead in procuring sustainable goods and services, the market would be created and the private sector would follow suit. .
