Electronics Watch: opening doors for bottom-up monitoring of factories
Electronics Watch is an independent monitoring organisation that helps public procurers to address the rights and safety of workers in their electronics
supply chain. By bringing together many public buyers as “affiliates”, it
allows them to achieve this more effectively than they could on their own.
It does this by offering tools and guidance to buyers and suppliers, and by directly monitoring factories.

GPP STREAM
GPP-STREAM builds on the idea that interregional cooperation can help mainstreaming GPP policies within the administrations involved and ensure that resource efficiency measures are spread and benefits acknowledged. The project aims to improve the management, implementation and monitoring of policy instruments that integrate GPP approaches so as to ensure that resource efficiency gains can be maximized and that resource efficiency objectives are institutionalized through GPP. The project is coordinated by Region Friuli and is implemented in partnership with 8 Bulgarian, Spanish, French, Italian and Romanian bodies that have complementary environmental and GPP expertise.
