Sustainable public procurement

Barcelona City Council is pushing ahead with sustainable public procurement that integrates social, environmental, ethical and innovative measures for safeguarding the employment, social and citizen rights not just of the individuals performing public contracts, but also the intended beneficiaries and users of those contracts. The goal is also to foster a circular and sustainable local economy that promotes the economic activity of local medium-sized, small and micro enterprises and, especially, social enterprises.

Social public procurement

The Social public procurement guide defines social, inclusive and social-justice measures at every level to promote public procurement with enterprises and professionals that follow a business model based on decent salaries and which promote ethical and stable employment contracts.

Environmental public procurement

The Guide to environmental public procurement incorporates the criteria and technical instructions for public procurement, putting special emphasis on environmental issues in activities such as work projects, cleaning and collecting building waste, electricity and IT equipment, among others.

Innovative purchasing

The Guide to innovative public procurement considers innovation to be a key element that enhances sustainable purchasing. It identifies the City Council’s purchasing potential and stimulates innovation geared towards resolving the city's challenges and extending the impact of its social and environmental policies.
