GPP Helpdesk Webinar - Green Public Procurement of Road Transport

12 April 2019

Green Public Procurement (GPP) is an important tool to achieve environmental policy goals relating to climate change, resource use and sustainable consumption and production – especially given the importance of public sector spending on goods and services in Europe.

This is the first of two Webinars that will be held in 2019, organised by ICLEI as part of the European Commission’s Helpdesk service on GPP.  The webinar will focus on new voluntary EU green public procurement (GPP) criteria for Road Transport (published Janurary 2019), which have been designed to help public authorities procure vehicles and mobility services with considerably reduce environmental impacts.

The GPP Helpdesk Webinars provide a forum to inform stakeholders working in the field of public sector procurement about important new developments in the resources available and legislative context for GPP, and provide an opportunity for questions and discussion.
