Introduction :

Country:   United States (Home Based)


Description of the Assignment:  

The objective of this consultancy is to make a concerted effort and commitment to embed sustainability considerations into what, how and where we buy, as well as what happens to the goods we leave behind, is not just sound procurement policy – it is a broader promise to our partner countries. As we are in the last decade of the 2030 Agenda, the role of public procurement is shifting towards becoming a critical partner and enabler of organizational sustainability. In this context, Sustainable Procurement (SP) activities reflect broader economic goals such as job creation, promoting technology innovation, and supporting opportunities for Small and Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs), in addition to meeting the underlying principles of public procurement. On the environmental side, SP aims to factor in the environmental impacts of production and usage, like pollution and resource efficiency. On the social side, SP aims to integrate concerns around ethical sourcing, promoting fair employment practices, supplier diversification, following the principles outlined in the UN Global Compact, Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the SDG 2030 Agenda. Taking a supply chain perspective, SP due diligence measures further need to be applied throughout global supply chains, from commodity inputs to manufacturing and distribution, ensuring that lower-tier inputs are not contradictory to the principles of SP.
