Introduction Chapter summary Green public procurement has been talked about on worldwide scales in the later piece of the most recent decade when the United Nation Environmental Program built up a system for Green Public Procurement GPP crosswise over open and private associations in 2017 Global Review to empower the following advancement of the 2015 Global Review which was based on an exploration examining what 41 national governments were doing to advance, actualize and measure the result of SPP to check the outcomes and survey the advancement throughout the years. With respect to the well-being of the nation, the implementation of green public procurement is essential, and this has been discussed even in the United Nations Environment Programme 2017, where sustainable public procurement was defined as a "process whereby open associations address their issues for merchandise, administrations, works and utilities in a way that accomplishes an incentive for cash on an entire life-cycle premise as far as creating benefits not exclusively to the association, yet in addition to society and the economy, while fundamentally lessening negative effects on the earth". However, the lack of any concern relating to environmental impacts is becoming a major concern as most of the developing countries still look away from the environmental impact of human activities. In Nigeria, the core objectives of the 2007 Public Procurement Act, are competition, transparency, efficiency, and value for money, and was only established to minimize the rate of corruption in public procurement process. However, the 2007 Act did not consider the environmental impact in the public procurement process. Ergo, this project aims to develop the concept for the putting into practice of green public procurement in Nigeria. 8 | P a g e
Background In the EU, public procurements accounts for an average of 16% of GDP while in developing countries the statistics on the same remains to be mostly a speculation since most are marred with corruption, therefore, failing to use public procurement as a policy tool to make markets more competitive, and therefore improve the quality of government services further making private firms fall behind in inducing innovation and the regulation of public procurement to help reduce corruption in the process.
