EcoProcura 2018, the international conference on sustainable, strategic, circular and innovation procurement, took place in European Green Capital Nijmegen (The Netherlands), shining a light on how procurement evolved as a policy tool for achieving strategic objectives and targets. The conference brought together over 400 public procurers and stakeholders from across Europe and the world, inspiring and motivating them to grasp all the opportunities available to buy better. The conference was opened with an inspirational speech from Dr. Bertrand Piccard, Chairman and Initiator of the Solar Impulse Foundation. Piccard called on procurers to become today’s pioneers and explorers, asserting that "Today the challenge is not technology. It is psychology”.
