Mannheim2020: Socially Responsible Procurement

  • 02.10.2020
    09:30 to 11:00

  • Digital

Procurement is a powerful tool that helps public authorities meet their needs for products and services but offers the opportunity to drive the implementation of Agenda 2030. This can range from leveraging the power of procurement to achieve environmental goals, but also to foster fair working conditions, supporting gender-equality or marginalised groups, to improving conditions across a supply-chain in collaboration with industry.

This session explores the following questions:

  • What are key challenges and drivers when getting started on sustainable or innovation procurement?
  • How can procurement be used to influence global supply-chains such as electronics?
  • What are examples for the difference that socially responsible procurement made?
    What are recommendations from experienced procurers on how to start buying social?

Speakers are:

  • Elin Seveholt (Advisor Sustainable Procurement, Stavanger Municipality)
  • David Salomonsen (Head of Special Taskforce on Social-Dumping, CSR-unit, Copenhagen Municipality).

Mannheim2020 takes place from September 30th to October 2nd. You can expect lectures on the topics of Social Innovation, Smart City, The Green Deal and more.
