Published on September 13, 2022

Join us next 29 September 2022 at 4 p.m. UTC time for a WEAll Talk with member Bob Willard.

Net-Zero Procurement (N-ZP) is obtaining the best value for money when purchasing the most climate-friendly goods and services from suppliers who are most committed to science-based net-zero targets. This talk will explain the three main features of N-ZP and how governments can use it as a ubiquitous market force to mobilize the global business community in the race to achieve science-based net-zero greenhouse gas targets.
