Study on global public procurement to be presented at ISEAL Alliance workshop

25 October 2012

The ISEAL Alliance, the global association for sustainability standards, will hold a one day workshop on 30 October 2012 in London (United Kingdom) to unveil the findings of recently conducted research into sustainable public procurement globally. The workshop will also explore the barriers and opportunities that public procurement officials face when using sustainability standards to guide their purchasing decisions.

Through the workshop, participants will gain an insight into ISEAL's work to better understand the state of sustainable public procurement globally and discuss how standards can play an increased role, with a focus on innovative tools and strategies. As well as the presentation of the research report, case studies of how sustainability standards are being implemented will be examined.

Supporting key procurement stakeholders to more readily use credible standards will also be discussed. ICLEI Europe’s Ignacio Giménez will present at the workshop, along with representatives from Transport for London, Pianoo, ClientEarth and more. The workshop is open to businesses, NGOs, standard-setters, governments, researchers and anyone involved in the standards or procurement sectors.
