Green Public Procurement &  Technology Advancements in the Road sector thumbnail imageHosted at POLIS in Brussels on 20th September, the IRF Environment Study Day on “Green Public Procurement & Technology Advancements in the Road Sector” gathered key stakeholders and institutional organizations: European Commission, UNEP, IISD (International Institute for Sustainable Development), ICLEI (international association of local governments), FIA, IRU, IFSTTAR (Former LCPC), POLIS, Eurochambers of commerce.

The event was particularly valued as it was the first specifically addressing GPP in the road sector. Despite the significant part that roads play in public expenditure, there has been very little attention and debate on what institutional, market and capacity barriers need to be removed in the sector to achieve even greater scaling up of GPP in the immediate term.
