Catch up on ICLEI's latest news on sustainable procurement in Europe

20 March 2013

The March edition of the Sustainable Procurement Update contains a mix of European procurement news, funding opportunities, and training events information, and is now available to view online. The newsletter content is drawn from the European Sustainable Procurement Campaign, Procura+, and ICLEI's Sustainable Procurement activities in Europe.

This issue focuses on the raft of assistance on offer for various procurement actions, particularly the Clean Fleets project’s support with implementing the Clean Vehicles Directive, the Sustainable Timber Action (STA) project’s technical and legal assistance on implementing sustainable timber procurement, and Topten’s support for public authorities preparing tender documents for energy consuming products. Upcoming trainings in Germany, Portugal, Italy, Hungary and Spain are also discussed.

Information on the Breakfast at Sustainability’s meeting, which will explore the opportunities and challenges presented by purchasing sustainable timber, is provided. The event is set to take place on 22 March 2013. Those who wish to register can do so by contacting brussels-office@iclei.org.
