(02 June 2022) – AEIDL and ICLEI have been awarded a contract to manage the EU Helpdesk on Green Public Procurement (GPP). The new contract has the objective of renewing the function of the Helpdesk and expanding its mandate to cover sustainable public procurement.
Sustainable Public Procurement (SPP) is a process by which public authorities seek to achieve the appropriate balance between the three pillars of sustainable development – economic, social and environmental – when procuring goods, services or works.
The Helpdesk service on GPP engages in communication and dissemination services, production of best practices of sustainable procurement, website development and maintenance, process public enquiries, organising webinars on SPP-related topics, and support to GPP meetings.
On 22 June (10.00 – 11.30 Brussels time), AEIDL is going to organise the first webinar of this year on the use of innovation partnerships in the social sector.
