GPP2020 final conference to look at implementing low-carbon tenders in practice

Ideas and achievements will be shared at the final conference of the GPP2020 project, set to take place on 19 April 2016 in Brussels (Belgium). Procurers that have carried out low-carbon public purchases for supplies, services and works will provide attendees with an insight into the challenges and successes faced.

The event will be held in the offices of the delegation of the Government of Catalonia to the European Union (Espai Catalunya Europa) and will focus on how low-carbon procurement works in practice. The conference will also look at developing long lasting, successful support structures for the further implementation and mainstreaming of GPP in Europe. The programme for the event is available to view online.

The EU-funded GPP2020 project has achieved savings equivalent to over 350,000 tonnes of CO2e to date, demonstrating the impressive power of coordinated low-carbon procurement activities to achieve CO2 emissions reduction targets. The project aims to implement more than 100 low-carbon tenders in countries across Europe.
