Green Procurement is subject for latest Limerick European Green Leaf 2020 series

 

Limerick City and County Council in association with the Rediscovery Centre is hosting an online seminar all about Green Procurement.

 

This event provides an exciting opportunity for all in the local authority and public sector to learn about green procurement’s ideology and the circular economy, while also giving businesses an insight into what is required under the green procurement process so that they can tender for contracts.

 

Green procurement aims to stimulate the provision of more resource-efficient, less polluting goods, services and works.

 

The webinar takes place on Tuesday, November 17, 2020, from 10.30am until 12noon and is part of the series celebrating Limerick as European Green Leaf 2020 winner.

 

The webinar is FREE and to register click HERE.

 

Sinead Mc Donnell, Environment Awareness Officer, Limerick City and County Council said: “This #EGLA Green Procurement webinar will give a practical insight into the collective need to incorporate the circular economy model into our day to day working lives. Our world is showing the stresses and strains of the current ‘take, make, waste’ model and moving towards the circular economy model will help preserve natural resources, protect habitats and reduce pollution.”

 

“We have a wonderful range of expert speakers and panellists including Sarah Miller CEO of the Rediscovery Centre, (National Academy for the Circular Economy); Mr Derek Flanagan from the Office of Public Procurement along with practical examples of Green procurement from the National Waste Collection Permit Office and Dublin City Council.”

 

Sarah Miller CEO Rediscovery Centre said: “Green public procurement provides a huge opportunity to unlock the potential of the circular economy and support sustainable and resilient communities. By embedding Environmental and social considerations within the procurement process we can enable public spending to impact positively on both society and our planet.”
