The BuyZET project's Observer City Group has been established and an Interest Group comprising cities and public authorities to closely follow the project's activities is currently open to new members. The seven Observer Cities - Brussels (Belgium), Southampton (UK), Bologna (Italy), Jerusalem (Israel), Bielefeld (Germany), Manchester (UK) and Munich (Germany) - will monitor and discuss the activities of the project, participate in expert meetings and join or form Buyers' Groups.
The Interest Group has already recruited Rijkswaterstaat (Netherlands) and the Albanian Ministry of Transport, as well as the cities of Budapest (Hungary), Torres Vedras (Portugal) and Helsinki (Finland). Other cities and public authorities are invited to join the Interest Group to gain access to useful resources and the project’s activities. The Interest Group will enjoy privileged access to project’s activities, access to project meetings and study visits, participation in webinars, buyers groups, access to an online project discussion group and more.
The BuyZET project is a partnership of cities aiming to achieve zero emission urban delivery of goods and services through innovative procurement approaches.
