Green Public Procurement (GPP)
Funded by the EU through SWITCH Asia, Green Public Procurement (2013-2016) is a PhP 169.2-million project that aims to promote sustainable development in the Philippines.
Specifically, it aims to create and pilot a replicable and workable innovation within the procurement system in DTI that will support and provide incentives for government contractors to produce ecologically-certified product.
DTI handles this project in collaboration with the Department of Budget and Management (DBM-PS), EU-SWITCH, Government Procurement Policy Board – Technical Support Office (GPPB-TSO), National Economic Development Authority (NEDA), and Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA).
