JTPP Helpdesk webinar: Public Procurement & Circular Economy

30-06-21 | 10:30 - 11:30 AM CET

What are the procurement activities of Japanese government entities in support of a transfer to a Circular Economy and does this offer opportunities for EU SMEs?

A wide range of activities are undertaken by the Japanese government to deal with environmental challenges such as climate change, global warming and environmental pollutions. The transfer to a Circular Economy is regarded as one of the ways to deal with these challenges. While balancing a variety of interests, governments have various means at their disposal to support their policy choices. Public Procurement is one seen as one of these tools. 

During this webinar we will discuss JTPP Helpdesk's first Thematic Report on Japanese Public Procurement and the transfer to a Circular Economy and take a closer look at Japan's Green Public Procurement (GPP) activities and discuss opportunities for EU SMEs.

The webinar is targeted to EU SMEs that have ambitions to offer 'green solutions' to Japanese government organizations through public procurement.

  • Regulations governing Green Public Procurement
  • Actual procurement conducted by Japanese government entitites for public services like waste processing
  • Introduction of recent policies and initiatives undertaken by Japanese government entities.
