Take part in this exciting webinar on Public Procurement of Nature-based Solutions

22 September 2022

How we finance Nature-based Solutions is just as important than the co-creation of these solutions themselves. This is why stakeholders from the spheres of the NbS and Public Procurement communities are coming together to deliver a session to help public procurers gain more understanding on Nature-based Solutions topics.

On 06 October (11:00-12:15 CET) and as part of the GPP Helpdesk service, a webinar about Public Procurement of Nature-Based Solutions will take place. This webinar aims to provide public procurers with the necessary knowledge to inspire them to take the first step towards a journey to Green Public Procurement.

Green Public Procurement refers to using purchasing power to choose environmentally friendly goods, services and/or works. By making economic choices in this direction, meaningful contributions can be made towards our environmental aims. This is just scratching the surface of the potential synergies between the procurement field and the realm of nature-based solutions. To unlock the full potential of these concepts, be sure not to miss this innovative session. Here is a sneak peak of the agenda:
