2022 OECD Infrastructure Forum

Session 7: Procurement of Quality Infrastructure

Oct 12, 2022 | 9:15 AM - 10:30 AM

Room CC9 - Plenary room


The long-term goal of a green transition has been met with short-term crosswinds of recent cost inflation, particularly in the energy and construction sectors, which poses new risks and uncertainties for infrastructure providers and central procurement bodies. This session dives deeper into how procurement strategies can respond to these challenges, while continuing to drive and incentivise a green transition. Leading infrastructure providers will give their on-the-ground perspective on how public purchasers and private contractors can better manage rising costs, and how green construction guidelines and life cycle costing methodologies can help identify and measure emissions and environmental impacts across an asset’s life. The session will also discuss how the procurement of reusable resources, such as through a circular economy, can help remove embodied emissions entirely.
