Public procurement is vital to the achievement of climate neutrality targets set by governments around the world. This workshop gives procurers the opportunity to get introduced to the Net Zero Toolkit by the Chancery Lane Project, which can be used by subnational governments that have committed to the Race to Zero and ICLEI’s Climate Neutrality Framework. The toolkit includes practical checklists, case studies and a glossary of relevant terms around climate and procurement. In the workshop, you will get an overview of the Climate Clauses across sectors such as energy or information technology (IT). This session will also add value to policymakers and sustainability advisors by showcasing very practically the significant leverage public procurement holds in institutionalising climate targets. 

Speakers

  • Maryke van Staden, Director of ICLEI’s Bonn Center for Local Climate Action and Reporting (Carbon Climate Center), ICLEI World Secretariat
