FOREWORD
On August 15, 2008, at a national address on the 60th anniversary of the Republic of Korea, President Lee Myung-Bak announced a “low-carbon, green growth” strategy as a new vision to guide the nation’s long-term development. Extensive growth in labour and capital made extensive growth possible, but this often had the unintended consequence of fuelling the conflict between growth and quality of life, as well as leading to pollution and environmental deterioration. Green growth, the pursuit of environmentally sound economic development, has been our new national paradigm and Korea wants to share this new developing model with other countries that want to harmonize development and environmental protection. Green procurement is a key policy tool for promoting sustainable consumption that enables governments to lead green consumption

Abstract

Vietnam, similar to any developing country, is trying to promote economic development, while facing many issues such as poverty, corruption, human resource, education and environment. Nevertheless, the Government continues to advance sustainable development perspectives in the country’s socioeconomic development process. Green procurement is the purchase of any product and service that results in reduced environmental impacts, all the while performing similar functions and demonstrating social responsibility and ethics at a comparable price. Green procurement is a key policy tool for promoting sustainable consumption that enables governments to lead green consumption by example. In addition, the green economic impacts of Green Procurement would be substantial especially in countries whose government expenditure represents 10 to 15% of gross domestic product. This study aims to provide a solid foundation for adopting a Green Procurement system in the Vietnamese context. (The rest omitted)
