The ninth edition of the CompraVerde-BuyGreen International Forum of Green Procurement will take place from 1-2 October 2015 in the Acquario Romano - Casa dell’Architettura in Rome (Italy). The event will feature GreenCanteen Award, which recognises dedication to food quality (organic food, short supply chain, seasonal food, fair trade products) and to the reduction of environmental and social impacts in publicly or privately run canteens.
The primary objective of the Forum is to promote a new approach, which integrates green procurement, social and product innovation, and green employment to create an environmentally and socially sustainable society. It provides a showroom and centre of good-practice exchange for public bodies, private companies and non-profit organizations to share their successes and learn from what others have achieved.
The Forum is amongst the largest of its kind, with over 100 companies participating, more than 400 one-to-one meetings and over 150 speakers and previous editions.
