Buenos Aires is the latest city to join the GLCN on SP

Buenos Aires is the latest city to join the GLCN on SP

The Global Lead City Network on Sustainable Procurement (GLCN on SP) has welcomed a new city as part of the initiative: Buenos Aires, the capital of Argentina. With this new incorporation, a total of 14 cities are now part of the GLCN on SP, championing sustainable public procurement (SPP) globally, and setting ambitious and quantified targets on SPP that can serve as inspiration for other local and regional governments.

The Autonomous City of Buenos Aires is the largest and most populated city in Argentina. Its conurbation population is about 13 million people. The city has over 1,050 green spaces.

The city issued a manual on sustainable public procurement that includes information about the concept, its history, its relevance, possible barriers and obstacles, and the benefits it entails. During the last years, local authorities have focused on the sustainable management of packaging, as well as the responsible consumption and purchasing of paper. Energy efficiency has been another important topic.
