EcoProcura conference series
The EcoProcura conference series is the only European-wide forum to promote exchange and dialogue among purchasers from all levels of government, suppliers, policy-makers and multipliers on strategies and the latest practical solutions on sustainable and innovation procurement. Each event attracts 350 - 400 participants.
EcoProcura has been running for 20 years and is a dynamic and unique meeting place to exchange and equip participants with the latest professional information, advice and networking opportunities for professionals seeking to implement high quality, cost effective strategic, sustainable and innovation procurement practices.
Procurement can play a key role in strategic governance, ensuring service delivery that achieves value for money and generates benefits not only for the organisation, but also for the environment, society and the economy. By using procurement strategically organisations can ensure that their purchasing reflects broader goals, for example linked to resource efficiency, climate change, quality of life, social responsibility and economic resilience. Procurement also has the potential to create and move markets for new technologies and solutions, whilst at the same time stimulating the economy and creating jobs.
