SEAP MONITORING AND GREEN PURCHASES

Data4Action

 
What does it mean to monitor a SEAP? What kind of support can provide the adoption of the Green Procurement for the implementation of the SEAP? What are the salient features of the Green Public Procurement?
These are the questions which the Training Seminar organized on March 31 2015 by the Metropolitan City of Turin, in collaboration with Consip SpA, within the European Project DATA4ACTION, and dedicated to local administrations officials, will try to give an answer.
About fifty municipalities of the Metropolitan City of Turin have adopted a Plan of Action for Sustainable Energy – SEAP, for them it’s now going to start the phase of the monitoring of the actual implementation of the actions included therein. One of the most important activity is the adoption of strategies of Green Public Procurement (GPP): to insert environmental criteria in the ordinary procedures of purchasing goods and services of public administrations.
