Global Lead City Network on Sustainable Procurement
The 1st Network Summit of the Global Lead City Network on Sustainable Procurement is taking place within the United Nations Conference of the Parties (COP) 21 in Paris (France), and hosted at the TAP Pavilion on 5 December. It will be used as an opportunity for high level city representatives to showcase the sustainable procurement activities and commitments which the participating cities have introduced, and the power these can have in combating climate change.
The Global Lead City Network on Sustainable Procurement is an initiative launched by Seoul Metropolitan Government in partnership with ICLEI, to promote sustainable public procurement (SPP) and related environmental, societal and financial benefits. The United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and Korea Environmental Industry and Technology Institute (KEITI) have welcomed the initiative and are looking forward to its integration in the 10YFP on SPP Programme. The aim is to create a worldwide network of leading cities that meet, share and develop their capabilities to implement sustainable and innovation procurement to drive a transition to sustainable production and consumption.
