Is the concept of SP new?

The concept of sustainable procurement is not new. A campaign against the clothing sector concerning the child labor practices found in its supply chain, and a campaign against conflict minerals in the electronics sector have focused a great deal of attention on the risks that lie deep within supply chains. In 2011, VNO-NCW, MKB Nederland, De Groene Zaak, MVO Nederland and NEVI presented their Sustainable Procurement Advice to the government. This involved strategic advice for stimulating sustainable development by using public tenders as leverage, resulting in more sustainable supply chains.
