Product Sourcing & Sustainability

UNDP Shop strives to build long-term business relationships with reputable vendors across the globe. We work with a broad variety of vendors, ranging from producers of watches made from destructed illegal firearms, to local artisans of handmade goods. All vendors are carefully chosen in the best interest of UNDP, which means that any business transactions must conform to the mandates and principles of UNDP and the SDGs.

Sustainable procurement means making sure that the products and services we buy are as sustainable as possible, with the lowest environmental impact and most positive social results.  Our goal is to adopt more sustainable production and consumption practices as we grow. We strive to integrate sustainability in as many ways as possible, from packaging to product sourcing.
