Public authorities serve as examples of green procurement. But what role do environmental aspects currently play in public procurement in Europe and how can the objective of green procurement be put into practice? What kind of initiatives, experiences and criteria already exist? Together with experts, practitioners and scientists in the field of public procurement from all over Europe, we would like to discuss how procurement can contribute to the goals of

  • climate protection,
  • circular economy,
  • biodiversity,
  • a non-toxic environment.

The conference will be hosted by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) and the German Environment Agency (UBA) and organized by the Berlin Energy Agency GmbH (BEA).

The event will be held in English.

Participation in the conference is free of charge.
