DEPARTMENT OF TRADE AND INDUSTRY – GREEN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT

DTI, Switch Now, European Union (EU)

Committed to its goal of contributing to the government initiative of promoting Sustainable Consumption and Production (SCP) processes, the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) will implement a green procurement policy. As a pioneer, the department will mark the starting point in the introduction of green public procurement (GPP). Beyond the implementation, the DTI aims to raise awareness of suppliers and other government agencies to foster the general application of sustainable tendering processes within the country. By doing so, the supply of green products should be increased and innovations fostered. Moreover, green public procurement should serve as an engine for the international competitiveness of national enterprises and serve as a component to fight the risk of climate change.

What is GPP?
According to the European Commission, Green Public Procurement (GPP) is a “process whereby public authorities seek to procure goods, services and works with a reduced environmental impact throughout their life cycle when compared to goods, services and works with the same primary function that would otherwise be procured.”

Why?
Government, being a major consumer, can make an important contribution to sustainable consumption and production by using its purchasing power to choose goods and services with lower impacts on the environment. Green procurement is also about influencing the market. By promoting and using GPP, public authorities can provide industry with real incentives for developing green technologies and products.

The DTI-GPP Project
Launched in January 2013, DTI’s GPP project is a partnership between the Philippine Government and the European Union-funded SWITCH-Asia Policy Support Component Philippines. It is an inter-office initiative led by the General Services Division (GSD) under DTI’s Management Services Group (MSG) in collaboration with other bureaus/offices such as the Resource Generation and Management Service and the Bureau of Philippine Standards.

Logical Framework Design
  • Project Goal:
“To encourage businesses towards an environmentally sustainable consumption and productivity”
  • Project Purpose:
“To support and provide incentives to government contractors producing an ecologically certified product”
  • Outcome Statement:
“Availability of green products in the market ready to be procured by government instrumentalities”

Key Components
  • Core Activities
  • Product-based Approach
  • The application of environmental criteria for specific product groups constitutes the core of every green procurement strategy. In order to follow that approach, first product groups have to be selected and environmental criteria for these product groups need to be defined.
  • Additional Approaches
  • Along with the selection of first product groups, additional approaches form an important facet of GPP. While the procurement of particular environmentally friendly products within selected product groups affects a specific segment of the procurement process, activities under additional approaches can aim at the reduction of total consumption, changes in the consumption, or avoiding negative side-effects connected to the procurement.
  • Life Cycle Costing
  • Life Cycle Costing is a methodology that enables the incorporation of costs and benefits which occur over the lifetime of a product into the procurement decision and which aim at selecting the good or service with the lowest life cycle costs. It is motivated by the fact that for most products, the purchasing price reflects only a small part of the costs that are generated by the product. By using Life Cycle Costing, maintenance, operational and disposal costs are integrated in the price calculation
  • Communication
  • Communication of the GPP action plan is an important facet of the transition phase, since only well informed staff and external stakeholders can ensure the proper implementation of the action plan. Therefore, all participants and relevant stakeholders need to be informed about the planned activities in order to provide the necessary support. This component involves internal (within DTI) and external (other key government agencies in procurement) communication.
  • Business Engagement
  • Beyond the general communication on GPP with business, the DTI has particular capabilities in supporting companies. The overall goal of the SWITCH-Philippines project is defined as the contribution to government initiatives of encouraging businesses to adopt sustainable and environmentally sound production and consumption processes and practices. Thus, the engagement of businesses units depicts an important facet of the GPP strategy.
  • Training
  • Sufficient training is essential for the successful implementation of GPP. In regards to the DTI, training dealing with awareness raising, the first steps of the implementation and continuous update will be fundamental. At the operational level, trainings will include awareness rising as well as technical workshops/capacity building.
