The Asia-Pacific GPPEL network project officially known as “Strengthening the capacities and improving the knowledge on green public procurement and ecolabelling in the Asia-Pacific region”, started in 2013 and mainly aims at strengthening SPP and ecolabelling in the Asia-Pacific region, based on the expertise of China, Japan and South Korea in the combined use of SPP and ecolabelling, at enhancing South-South collaboration on those topics, and at ensuring a broad participation of Asia-Pacific countries in the 10YFP SPP programme. This project is co-funded by China’s Ministry of Environmental Protection (MEP), and the Korean Environmental Industry & Technology Institute (KEITI). Asia-Pacific GPPEL webinars are held bi-annually and aim at sharing knowledge and best practice on GPP and ecolabelling in the Asia-Pacific region.
