1.2 Greener cities through smart public procurement
During the session, representatives from two European cities will share their practical experience of integrating sustainable public procurement into their overall procurement strategies. This will be followed by an intervention by the Global Director of ICLEI's Sustainable Procurement Centre, who will give useful information on existing public procurement networks and partnerships. The European Commission will also present the different policies and tools developed at EU level to facilitate the uptake of sustainable public procurement. Lastly, a Q & A session will be open to the participants.
