Responsibility in Procurement Conference – December 2007

The European Conference on ‘Responsibility in Procurement’ will be held in early December 2007 in Lille (France). The Conference will provide a high-profile European platform to disseminate the latest policies and guidance, and European good practice experience – from the public and private sector – on socially and ethically responsible procurement. The focus will be on two sectors:  construction, and textiles and clothing. The one and a half-day event will bring together policy and procurement officers from European local governments and their associations and networks, regional and national governments, companies (as suppliers and purchasers), the European Commission, NGOs, trade unions and international organizations. Information on the Conference programme is available at www.respiro-project.eu/conference, and by contacting Ms Marta Anglada by email at marta.anglada@iclei-europe.org.
