Green Procurement in Trade Policy

[Document disponible en anglais seulement]

Description

As interest and consumer demand grows for “green” products, and as producers realize increased market share in food products and consumer goods, public procurement, covering all federal and sub-central purchasing of countries throughout the world, is becoming an increasingly important market force. Just one web service, the Recycling Data Network Information Services, lists a recycled-content products database of over 4,500 listings in 700 product classifications. The US government alone purchases more than $200 billion worth of products and services annually and provides an additional $240 billion to grantees that, in turn, buy products and services. Sub-central and local markets are equally valuable in aggregate terms.
