Sustainable Procurement Working Group
Chairs: Carsten Hansen (Chief, Global Procurement Services, UNDP) and Niels Ramm (UNGM Team Lead, UNOPS)
The Sustainable Procurement Working Group (SP WG) was created within the framework of the HLCM Procurement Network in 2007 with the aim to facilitate the integration of sustainable procurement interventions in the procurement activities of the UN system. The group has been active in promoting the SP agenda and has spearheaded the development of several tools for UN practitioners, including training courses, guidelines, frameworks and case studies, among others. Much progress has been made by individual UN agencies to pursue SP through their policies and operations.
