As part of the Procura+ Campaign, Birmingham City Council in partnership with ICLEI are organising the next Procura+ Seminar and Participants Meeting. Cities engaging with suppliers to purchase highly innovative energy-efficient products is the main focus of this year's European event, taking place in Birmingham (United Kingdom) on the 6-7 November 2008. Ms. Lieve Bos, Project Officer for pre-commercial procurement at the European Commission DG INFSO has confirmed speaking at the event.
Interested in reducing your city's energy and CO2 emission bill? The Procura+ Seminar will bring together purchasers and representatives from all levels of governments, companies (suppliers and manufacturers), Procura+ Participants and European institutions to exchange, present and learn about opportunities for early market engagement between public authority procurers and suppliers in the pre-procurement phase. A selection of innovative product solutions, that are yet to be made widely available on the market, will also be presented and their potential for market penetration explored.
How to participate?

About the Campaign
Procura+ is an initiative designed to help support public authorities across Europe in implementing Sustainable Procurement – and help promote their achievements.
The Campaign was established in 2004 by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability to help drive the mainstreaming of sustainable public procurement throughout Europe. Through participating in the Campaign, public authorities can contribute to a growing international movement and help bring about real change on the market.
