Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

Target 12.7: Promote public procurement practices that are sustainable, in accordance with national policies and priorities

The UNCITRAL Model Law on Public Procurement provides legal mechanisms for States to promote best practice in public procurement, thus ensuring the sustainability of procurement practices, and allows States to pursue sustainable policy objectives through public procurement. The Guide to Enactment of the Model Law discusses considerations that should be taken into account if a State decides to pursue such policy objectives as supporting disadvantaged groups and environmental policies through public procurement, including compliance with applicable international obligations and possible tradeoffs with the primary objectives of public procurement systems (economy, efficiency, competition, transparency, fairness and objectivity).
