The emergence of Green Public Procurement created an innovative means of procuring goods and labour in line with global environment standards and regulations. Green Public Procurement has become a major mechanism for addressing global issues confronting the environment. This article employs a doctrinal research method, reviewing relevant existing literatures and legislations to consider the prospects of Green Public Procurement having a positive effect in Nigeria, Zambia, South Africa, China and Brazil. To achieve a holistic implementation process, this article advocates for concerted efforts to conduct a sustainability assessment, the establishment of clear sustainability goals, along with training and retraining of procurement staff engaged in the protection of the environment through Green Public Procurement.
