Webinar on CFITs framework for circular and fair procurement of ICT

A CFIT working group of participants and a few external experts, have developed its framework for circular and fair procurement of ICT.  The first version of this framework is now available for download. In a Webinar on February 7th, we will provide an introduction to this document, introduce the procurement cycle, the core strategies identified as well as the ambitions we aim to work towards. In addition, concrete examples will be presented of what implementation can look like and we will of course provide the opportunity to ask questions.

Join us on February 7th, 2023 - at 15.00 - 16.30 CET.
