L&DI awards finalist logo

We are delighted to be shortlisted for the Excellence in Learning Awards, in the Best Learning and Development Collaboration category with our colleagues from the Local Authority Services National Training Group (LASNTG) and Climate Action Regional Offices (CAROs) for our Green Public Procurement (GPP) training programmes supported by the Department of Environment, Climate and Communications and the Local Government City & County Managers Association.

Local authorities are at the forefront of Ireland’s response to the climate crisis, and GPP is an important tool in climate action for sourcing and securing more sustainable solutions and supporting the circular economy. To date, we have delivered training to over 2,000 participants across three course strands reaching a broad cross-section of local authority staff across Ireland.

This collaborative project was supported by the Local Authority Climate Action GPP Committee with representation from across the Local Authorities, LGMA, the EPA and the OGP.

Implementing GPP requires understanding, commitment and most importantly, behaviour change. We have learned so much from course participants while helping them on this journey – thank you to everyone involved!
