Challenging the sustainability of the global ICT supply chain: from mining to procurement

8 March 2018, 12:00 - 18:00
Leuven, Belgium

On the 8th of March 2018, from 12.00 – 18.00, KU Leuven, CATAPA and People and Planet are co-organising a symposium on “Challenging the sustainability of the global ICT supply chain: from mining to procurement” at the KU Leuven Campus Brussels.

The main topic is the sustainability of the electronics supply chain, including the procurement of ICT by public institutions. The symposium will give participants the chance to network with each other and find some new and interesting ways to manage the issues of sustainability within the global ICT supply chain.

CATAPA is currently involved in a joint learning initiative with other NGOs and institutions called “Make ICT Fair”, funded by the EU. The project aims to provide concrete improvements in the lives and livelihoods of workers and communities associated with ICT supply chains - particularly in the Global South.

The 15th Procura+ Seminar

21 - 22 March 2018, 9:00 - 17:00
Oslo, Norway

The City of Oslo (Norway) and ICLEI are partnering to host the 15th Procura+ Seminar on 21-22 March 2018, to bring together a diverse range of practitioners, experts and policy makers from across Europe.

Procurement is evolving rapidly and changing how public authorities across Europe purchase goods and services. Purchasing authorities are expected to professionalise procurement and take into account sustainability and innovation. Join Procura+ Network participants, key organisations working in the field and European Institutions at this event to unlock the untapped potential and opportunities within your own procurement plans, and learn skills needed to make better, strategic and more sustainable procurement decisions.

Participants will get the chance to hear from the City of Oslo on their new procurement strategy, and from the SPP Regions project partners on experiences of engaging with suppliers, applying circular procurement and using life cycle costing tools.

Detailed information about the Seminar will be made available on the Procura+ website. Please do not hesitate to contact at with any questions or if you would like to collaborate.
