14 September 2017

The 10YFP's Working Group on GPP in East Asia has received letters of commitment from Binhai New District, Guangming New District, Urumqi Economic Technological Development Zone (Totunhe District) in China and Suwon City in South Korea.

In July 2017, ICLEI, in cooperation with Korea Environmental Industry & Technology Institute (KEITI), assisted Suwon city to produce a procurement guideline on Recycled Asphalt Concrete (RAC) in Korean, which is identified as target for Suwon’s GPP action plan. The guideline includes a basic concept for green product and procurement procedures and methods on RAC. In August 2017, the guideline was distributed to relevant public procurers in Suwon.

The 10 Year Framework Programme (10YFP) is a global framework of actions to accelerate the shift towards sustainable consumption and production through international cooperation. Working Group 1A was established to support Chinese and Korean cities enhancing green public procurement at the local level.
