GLCN on SP presented at EcoProcura China 2018
Philipp Tepper, Coordinator, ICLEI sustainable economy and procurement delivered a presentation on the GLCN on SP network and introduced the commitments and achievements GLCN member cities have made over the last year at EcoProcura China, which recently took place in Beijing (China) on 16-17 May.
EcoProcura China is a two day conference which brought together 31 representatives and officials from 11 Chinese local governments alongside global experts, to share knowledge and best practices and explore the ways in which green public procurement can be used as an effective mechanism to achieve emission reduction targets and sustainable development goals within emerging economies in Asia.
During the conference, ICLEI East Asia launched the Procura+ East Asia network, the first network of its kind in the region, which will serve the interests of local governments in the region to accelerate green procurement.
Participants of Procura+ East Asia will be brought together through regular events and exchange programs to collectively develop new policies and criteria on specific areas related to green procurement. The Procura+ East Asia will also showcase participants’ achievement on the global stage and celebrate their success through the Procura+ Awards.
