Listen to our webinar, “Closing the sustainability gap in public procurement”, were we explore opportunities, dispel myths, identify gaps and effective solutions in the current approach to sustainability and procurement in public sector. A case study from Sweden are discussed as well as the vital role of public purchasers in driving positive change.

The new EU Public Procurement Directive currently being implemented by all member states, offers governments an opportunity to tighten legislation around sustainable purchasing, and for buyers at the local level to take advantage of existing opportunities to make more sustainable product choices. However, all too often, purchasing of goods and services in the public sector does not take environmental and social responsibility into account.

Speakers are dr Mikael Karlsson, researcher and president EEB, senior consultant 2050, ms Cecilia Williams Ehrenborg, vice managing director at Ecolabelling Sweden and mr Sören Enholm, managing director TCO Development.
