ICLEI, the Provincial and City Councils of Barcelona, the LEAP Project Consortium, the International Green Purchasing Network (IGPN), the Catalan Government and the Spanish Ministry for the Environment joined forces to present an exciting event that served to deepen and widen the commitment to adopt sustainable procurement practices and to pick up the pace of local, regional and national actions.
