What is socially responsible public procurement?

Socially responsible public procurement (SRPP) is the idea that customers and buyers should look beyond the price of products and services, and consider how they are produced, sourced, and delivered.

Especially if applied to global businesses, socially responsible public procurement would allow to promote sustainability, ethical labour practices, social inclusion, and support for local businesses in the procurement process. The goal is to use procurement as a tool to achieve broader societal and environmental objectives.

The EU service contract “Training and Awareness-raising Activities in Socially Responsible Public Procurement” aims to organise events whose objective is to raise awareness on Socially Responsible Public Procurement (SRPP). The events will be held in 12 member States (Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Estonia, Finland, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain).
