Agenda 2030 and public procurement driving it
Lately, I have come across strong initiatives in the Nordic countries that intend to drive Agenda 2030 and all it´s goals by embedding the content within the public procurement activities. As you know, the public sector is very large in my Country, Sweden, and I expect this move to have a fundamental effect on trade in general. For obvious reasons they (state, regional and local governments) are looking for insights and inspiration from us at IACCM.
I do not know if I am an early observer (I am not first) or "the last one to figure it out". Regardless, I am interested in understanding if, and if so how, such initiatives are launched elsewhere in the world and a bit more "meat on the bones" if available. It would be very beneficial to me.
Very best regards,
