In the midst of a polluted planet, a pandemic, increasing diseases, and growing conflicts, many of us recognize that health is our most important value. Health should therefore be an important component of all policies, including public procurement. This World Health Day, we will highlight how public procurement can successfully inspire change towards a healthy, toxic-free future!

We invite you to join the webinar of the World Future Council: Our Planet, our Health: Success Factors of Toxic-free Public Procurement

This online event is dedicated to pioneering public procurement measures effective in reducing hazardous chemicals and their success factors. In particular, it will feature a Future Policy Gold Award-winning policy from the Swedish region Stockholm, which has reduced the use of listed substances by 90 percent in the health sector.
