Sustainable Public Procurement

The Marrakesh Agreement included Colombia as one of the 12 countries to carry out a sustainable public procurement pilot. In this context, and in line with the creation of the new Colombia Compra Eficiente (Colombia Efficient Procurement), E3 developed the guidelines for sustainable public procurement for Colombia. This project has allowed defining the potential of strategic sectors to implement it, the needs to achieve it and proposing possible inter-institutional arrangement to turn it into a public policy. Similarly, this initiative funded by OEI and UNEP, included training and inter-sectorail coordination activities with several ministries in order to reach procurement agreements that would drive sustainability in the country.
