Latest news on sustainable procurement from ICLEI out now

The November edition of the Sustainable Procurement Update has just been published and is full of information on new resources and opportunities for procurement, as well as capacity building and network events.

This issue focuses on the launch of a new resource to assist purchasers and other stakeholders to turn procurement actions into more innovative practices to spur innovation. The Procurement of Innovation Platform (PPI) was launched by the Vice-President of the European Commission, Antonio Tajani, in Brussels (Belgium) on 29 October. The PPI Platform is the first port of call for all things related to PPI and pre-commercial procurement (PCP).

New resources as well as opportunities to exchange and share information with experts in the areas of timber, catering, healthcare and construction are presented in the newsletter. The information is supplemented by news about the City of Rotterdam (The Netherlands) joining the Procura+ Sustainable Procurement Campaign over the summer.
