Procura+ Participants recognized

August 02, 2006

Thirty Procura+ participants, national partners and potential future participants met at the second Participants Meeting in Torino, Italy on 6-7 July 2006.


At the meeting, the Cities of Kolding (Denmark) and Z├╝rich (Switzerland), the Province of Torino (Italy), and ARPA Piemonte (the Environmental Protection Agency for the Region of Piemonte) were awarded a Procura+ Approved certificate, to recognise their achievement in completing the Milestone Process.


A revision to the conditions for participation was also raised, to give participants further flexibility in implementation, together with suggestions on improving communication between participants, ICLEI and the national partners, including more effective progress reporting mechanisms.


New key purchasing criteria for green electricity and IT equipment, together with guidelines for sustainable construction - developed within the DEEP project - were discussed, and a two-week period was offered for comments prior to formal adoption within the Campaign.
