3rd Talk4Action on Green Procurement

Public procurement represents between 13% and 20% of GDP on average worldwide. Green public procurement (GPP) is to encourage public authorities to purchase goods, services, and works with a lower impact on environment.  

On 17 December 2013, ICLEI East Asia Secretariat organized the 3rd Talk4Action focusing on GPP. Gathering city representatives and experts, the meeting served as a platform for exchanging knowledge and experience in promoting and implementing GPP in the region and beyond.
