UK Sustainable Procurement Task Force to Publish Report Early 2006

Established in May 2005, the Sustainable Procurement Task Force is charged with drawing up an action plan by April 2006 to bring about a step-change in sustainable public procurement so that the UK is among the leaders in the EU by 2009. (http://www.sustainable-development.gov.uk/delivery/global-local/ProcurementTaskforce.htm) Five working groups were formed to cover topics such as international benchmarking, data-gathering and prioritisation, working with suppliers to achieve improvements, government accounting and budgeting, and capacity building/ training/skills. The Task Force is expected to publish a report early next year. At the IGPN International Symposium on Green Purchasing in Bangkok, Friday 7 October, Eleni Pasdeki-Clewer of the Task Force will give a presentation on the Task Force.
