Abstract

This document highlights the need to move from a procurement approach centered on economic principles to another, integrating economic, social and environmental principles. It is an invitation to move forward in a sustainable public procurement agenda as a tool for economic development providing incentives for a change in the behavior of companies. Time is running out. A need for change becomes more evident by the day. The climate crisis and the inequalities we face as a society push us into action. It is a huge challenge: we need to move towards a new economy, and we must do it now.
