On 5th December, the European Commission, DG Grow, will organise an ad hoc meeting of the «Big Public Buyers and Networks» pilot initiative.

The meeting will be organised together with the Norwegian National Suppliers Development Programme who will facilitate the meeting, with participation of ICLEI and Eurocities. The meeting will take the form of a full day workshop on Zero Emission Construction Sites to prepare the grounds for a cross-border collaboration between several cities and regions – a more strategic and joint approach to green public procurement.

Scope and purpose:

The main focus of this meeting will be to get beyond the talk and move into action and concrete preparations for our collaborative efforts on Zero Emission Construction Sites, as an example of a joint statements of demand activity under the preliminary activities on the «Big Public Buyers and Networks» pilot initiative.

When the meeting is finished we should have established the following:

  • which cities and regions will be on board for this cross-border collaboration;
  • a work plan for the long, medium and short-term work required; (including having mapped barriers, stakeholders and relevant funding sources – among others);
  • a smart way of organizing future work.

This meeting will serve as a preparatory meeting for a possible future project on «zero emissions construction sites» under the «joint statements of demand» work stream on the «Big Public Buyers and Networks» pilot initiative.
