Join us on April 5, 2019 in New York City for the First Annual Transatlantic Roundtable on Sustainable Public Procurement hosted by

  • Pace Environmental Law and the Elisabeth Haub School of Law,
  • The Centre of Enterprise Liability, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, and
  • The George Washington University Law School's Government Procurement Law Program.

Researchers and renowned specialists from around the globe will discuss recent developments in the field of Sustainable Public Procurement. The global value of public procurement spending is enormous. OECD countries alone spend a total of a trillion U.S. dollars per year, and each year their governments spend around 14-19% of GDP on the purchase of services, works and supplies. In many sectors such as energy, transport, waste management, social welfare, education and health services, public authorities are the principal buyers. The sheer scale of public procurement spending can literally create and shape markets, impact lives of citizens across the country, and foster greater sustainability in terms of environmental protection, public health, and economic equality.

Speakers include:

  • Professor Jason J. Czarnezki, Kerlin Distinguished Professor of Environmental Law and Associate Dean, Elisabeth Haub School of Law at Pace University,
  • Marta Andhov, Assistant Professor, Faculty of Law, University of Copenhagen, Denmark,
  • Christopher R. Yukins, Lynn David Research Professor in Government Procurement Law and Co-Director of the Government Procurement Law Program, and
  • Nicole Darnall, Associate Dean and Professor, School of Sustainability Arizona State University

This event will be held at Pace University's Downtown Campus - 1 Pace Plaza, on the 18th floor in the North and South Boardrooms.
