Sustainable Procurement in the WA Local Government Sector

Following sector consultationin early 2017, WALGA has released a report of findings on sustainable procurement activity in the WA Local Government sector, which is available here.  In response, WALGA developed an action plan to design and develop tools and resources to assist Local Governments to embed sustainability considerations into its procurement practices. 

The WALGA Guide to Sustainable Procurement was launched on Wednesday, 4 October as an outcome from sector consultation. With the release of international standard ISO20400:2017 on Sustainable Procurement in April 2017, the WALGA Guide to Sustainable Procurement extends the guidance of the ISO Standard on Sustainable Procurement and tailors it specifically to the WA Local Government Sector.

The Guide contains five key sections:
  • Defining Sustainability and Sustainable Procurement
  • Applying a Sustainable Procurement Framework
  • Sustainability and Value for Money
  • WALGA Preferred Supplier Sustainability Rating System, and
  • Other Resources.

The guide is designed to accompany the WALGA Procurement Toolkit.
