Sustainable Public Procurement workshop

Using purchasing power to drive sustainability
12 April 2015
Seoul, Republic of Korea

While sustainable public procurement (SPP) has the capacity to bring about significant environmental and social benefits, many governments do not feel comfortable in incorporating it into their procurement policy. A training workshop set to take place at the ICLEI World Congress 2015 aims to make the process less intimidating, showing how some straight-forward changes can lead to substantial savings and a better public image.

Hosted by experienced SPP trainer Philipp Tepper, the course is tailored for those who purchase or lease goods or services, and those who work at a municipal or metropolitan government. Held in small groups of no more than 10 participants, the training will use advanced learning techniques in a friendly and informal atmosphere. The course is based on ICLEI’s successful SPP training programme, which has trained more than 1,200 people in the past five years.

The training costs €100 (130,000 Korean Won) and is payable via bank transfer or directly at the site in cash. The ICLEI World Congress 2015 runs from 8 – 12 April 2015 in Seoul (Republic of Korea), and will see representatives of local governments from around the world gather to discuss sustainability progress, exchange experiences and profile their achievements.
