Last chance: only one week left to apply to the Procura+ Awards 2022

Public authorities leading on sustainable, circular and/or innovative public procurements have just one more week (until 30 April) to apply for the prestigious 2022 Procura+ Awards. Apply now – because good sustainable public procurers deserve to be recognised for their great work!

Applications can be submitted in four categories: Sustainable Procurement of the Year, Innovation Procurement of the Year, Circular Procurement of the Year, and Procurement Initiative of the Year.

The winners will be chosen by a jury of experienced procurement experts and policy makers:

  • Erika Bozzay, Senior Policy Adviser at the Infrastructure and Public Procurement Division, OECD
  • Katharina Vierlich, Head of Unit, Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, European Commission
  • Mark Hidson, Global Director, ICLEI's Sustainable Procurement Centre
  • Sarah O'Carroll, Cities Lead: Institutions, Governments & Cities, Ellen MacArthur Foundation

Award winners receive extensive opportunities to promote their work, will be widely endorsed through a variety of ICLEI publications and communication channels, and will be the subjects of case studies published and showcased on the Sustainable Procurement Platform and the Innovation Procurement Platform.

Previous years’ applicants shared that taking part helped them to benchmark themselves, gain visibility, and prove their commitments to sustainability and innovation.

This is your last chance to apply – don’t miss this excellent opportunity!

Procura+ is a network of European public authorities and regions – initiated and coordinated by ICLEI Europe – that fosters connections, exchange, and action on sustainable and innovation procurement.
