Sustainable procurement will be discussed at the 8th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns from 27-29 April in the Basque Country, with a range of sessions to be held on greener and more innovative procurement in Europe. The PPI4Waste workshop on innovative waste solutions will take place the day before the official start of the conference on 26 April, and will bring together public procurers, suppliers and consultants in the field of waste management to discuss needs and showcase state of the art solutions for specific areas of waste management.

Registration for the PPI4Waste workshop can be completed online. Other sessions include "Well Fed Cities" and "Efficient Cities", which will respectively look at how public procurement can help to make urban food systems more sustainable, resilient and healthy, and how procurement practices can help to reduce energy consumption in European buildings and boost smart technology.

ICLEI will also mark 20 years of action on sustainable public procurement with a special reception at the Guggenheim. The final day of the conference will see a discussion on implementing purchasing strategies fit for the future at the Innovation Market round table dialogues.
