Public authorities can now submit their candidacies to the 2020 edition of the Procura+ Awards, a prestigious recognition of procurements and related initiatives with remarkable economic, environmental and social impacts, or innovation and innovation in ICT elements. The Procura+ Awards is an initiative of ICLEI, supported by the EU-funded Procure2Innovate project. The application period is open until 31st March 2020.

The awarded public authorities will receive an unique trophy and have the right to promote themselves with the award title. The rewarded procurement activities will be widely endorsed using a wide variety of ICLEI publications and channels. Furthermore, a case study on it will be produced and disseminated on the Sustainable Procurement Platform and the Innovation Procurement Platform. Winners will be granted free entry and a presentation slot at the next conference organised by ICLEI.

Participants in previous editions have highlighted that participating in the Procura+ Award helped them to benchmark themselves and to gain visibility. For winners, it was an excellent way to prove their commitment to sustainability and innovation, as well as to earn internal and external recognition. 

“We are thrilled that we are able through our public procurement to encourage the market to change in a sustainable way, and that we can share our experience with other purchasing authorities through our toolbox for socially sustainable workwear,” said Aline De Cokere, Public Buyer for City of Ghent and winner of the Sustainable Procurement of the Year Award, at the Award ceremony for the Procura+ Award 2019.
