EU GPP Helpdesk’s webinar – 24.11.2015 between 14:30 – 16:00 CET
Engaging the market is the topic of the EU GPP Helpdesk’s upcoming webinar. The event will take place on November 24, between 14:30 – 16:00 CET (Brussels time) and will consist of a series of presentations from across Europe. The webinar will look at how market engagement is a tool increasingly used in green public procurement (GPP), helping procurers to purchase more sustainable goods and services.
Market engagement allows procurers to engage the market before launching a public tender, and develop a better understanding of what sustainable solutions are currently available. The webinar will also look at a number of key legal issues which need to be considered before, during, and after a market engagement process, include a presentation from a public authority on how market engagement enabled them to purchase a particularly sustainable service, and how market engagement can help suppliers to foresee the future needs of public authorities, and meet these needs with more sustainable solutions.
More specifically, the webinar will include presentations on:
- Introduction – Michael Sorensen, European Commission, Directorate General for Environment
- Legal considerations for Market Engagement – Abby Semple, Legal Expert, Public Procurement Analysis
- Market Engagement in Practice – Federal Procurement Agency, Austria (speaker tbc)
- Market Engagement – the Supplier Perspective – (tbc)
