Webinar on European sustainability criteria for textiles on 28 June

A webinar organised by the EU GPP Helpdesk will take place on Monday 28 June at 14:30-16:00 (CEST) and will focus on the newly updated EU GPP Criteria for Textile Products and Services. The Webinar will feature presentations from experts working on green procurement in the field of textiles, including from the European Commission's Joint Research Centre (JRC).

It will provide insights from sectoral experts on the revision of the new European GPP criteria for textiles, and practical insights from public purchasers on how to overcome some of the challenges to implementing sustainable procurement policies in relation to textiles.

Details about the scope of new GPP guidance and its proposed solutions for the textiles product area will be up for discussion. These expert insights will be complemented by a selection of best practice experiences from European cities and regions. Participation is free of charge.
