19-21.9 EcoProcura 2012 - New opportunities to deliver sustainable procurement and innovation

EcoProcura Conferences provide a forum to encourage public authorities and their partners, such as the business community, to exchange experiences and coordinate their actions and purchasing power. By forging new partnerships it is possible to contribute to making the markets for products and services more sustainable. EcoProcura Conferences seek to generate more awareness - and motivating and encouraging people, both from the practical and political sense - on the issue of procurement (at the local, national and international level) and thereby contribute to the world-wide movement of mainstreaming sustainable public procurement.
