​This thematic group will develop practical, step-by-step guidance with an expanding collection of case studies from around the world, for social purpose procurement to support smart sustainable cities. It will provide cities with guidance on how to transition away from traditional approaches, to strategically improve their supply chain performance and illustrate the potential of sustainable procurement in bringing positive impacts. This will help contribute to cities successfully achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).​
