The Meeting, arranged by the Mayor of Paris, focused on the opportunity that public procurement can play in strengthening the Low Carbon Goods and Services Economy in attendees prospective countries, across Europe and globally. The attending Mayors or their representatives pledged to coordinate their public procurements to bring about the emergence of a more ecological offer.
