This Procurement Forum is the part of that platform that gives stakeholders a chance to exchange, connect and collaborate.

Active for over 17 years in the field of Sustainable Procurement, it also hosts the Procura+ Sustainable Procurement Campaign, the Sustainable Procurement Resource Centre and the EcoProcura series of conferences.

The other partners involved are PIANOo – the Dutch Public Procurement Expertise Centre, REC – the Regional Environmental Center for Central and Eastern Europe and iWT – the Flemish Agency for Innovation by Science and Technology.
