EcoProcura 2009 Reykjavik - Sustainable public procurement is a key tool in tackling climate change
This was the message given by more than 220 delegates from 41 countries at the 7th EcoProcura conference in Iceland's captivating capital.
Public authority delegates pledged to use their vast economic purchasing power to help fight climate change, by strongly boosting the market for climate friendly products and services. Participants also called on national governments to put the issue firmly on their agendas in the decisive round of global climate negotiations that were to take place in Copenhagen later that year.
The highly interactive conference programme, also including training sessions, was designed to maximise opportunities for in-depth discussion and networking, and was much appreciated by participants.
