Over the next decade, Welsh public services will spend over £60 billion in procuring a range of goods, services and works.
What do public bodies need to do differently to ensure, through sustainable procurement, this money can be spent in a way that delivers wider benefits for Wales?
The Well-being of Future Generations (Wales) Act 2015 provides an opportunity to transform the way procurement is done in Wales so that decisions consider prevention, the long-term, integration, collaboration and involvement whilst seeking to improve the economic, social, environmental and cultural well-being of Wales.
The focus of this interactive webinar was to encourage a mind-set shift towards delivering sustainable procurement that can contribute to improving well-being today and also for future generations.
Due to technical difficulties on the day we are unable to publish the webinar. We are going to re-run the webinar at a later date, details will follow shortly. Thank you for your patience.
