Procura+ Manual Available

The Procura+ Manual, a tool for ICLEI’s sustainable procurement campaign, is now available. Procura+ is an ICLEI initiative designed to help support public authorities across Europe in implementing sustainable procurement practices, and to help promote their achievements. The Manual provides clear and simple advice on how public authorities such as local governments, universities and schools, and hospitals can implement sustainable procurement – regardless of their size or level of experience.   A number of benefits can be gained from using the Manual and being part of the Campaign; these include:
  • achieving financial savings;
  • having access to best practices;
  • meeting local environmental, social and health goals; and
  • contributing to global sustainability. 
If you would like the Manual mailed to you, please send an email to Peter Defranceschi, Project Office of the Sustainable Procurement Team at peter.defranceschi@iclei-europe.org.  (You are welcome to request more than one copy.) It is also possible to download the Manual from the Procura+ website, at www.procuraplus.org.  The Manual is available in English, Italian, French, German and Catalan.
