Summary:imageThe report summarises the findings of an initiative led by the Local Sustainability Team (LSt) at IDeA in partnership with the SDC to explore the potential for developing sustainable procurement as a shared priority, i.e. between central-local levels of government and other public sector agencies and partners, including OGC. The report is based on the outcomes of a workshop held on 30th March 2004, organised jointly by the SDC, and Global to Local Ltd on behalf of IDeA.
