Welcome to present Institutions and Entities
At 9.30 am on 19 april 2016 the work session started with the inauguration by the opening table:
Mrs. Carmen Castreño Lucas, First Deputy Mayor, Delegate for Economy, Commerce and Institutional Relationships of the City Hall of Seville.;
Mrs. María Isabel Peinado Pérez, Second Vice-President of the Provincial Government of Cádiz and Executive Vice-President of the Energy Agency of Cádiz;At the end of the work session, a total of 19 memorandums of Coooperation were gathered, which have been increased in 1 when this minutes is being issued, making a total of 20 at the momemt.
The Memorandums of Cooperation are conceived as a requirement imposed by the Project in order to ensure a broad back up of GreenS’ strategy by the relevant stakeholders in each territory. That is why we have seized the opportunity brought by the kick-off meeting by widening the target group and spreading the message to all those stakeholders likely to have a say in the topic of GPP in Andalucía. (companies, regional government, and provincial councils) in order to create – in the frame of GreenS – a GPP Andalusian Network, which may provide support and coordination to the activities on GPP to be developed in our territory, from now up to the project’s finalisation in 2018; this way ensuring a stable working structure beyond the project’s end, so that stakeholders can go deeper in the establishment of a Public Procurement model seeking the integration of environmental and social criteria.
After that, the part related to the reporting of the project’s results and next milestones started (Available in video). This part was performed by the Technical Team of GreenS in Andalucía, integrated by Mr. Pablo Quero García and Mrs.ª Eva Mena Medina, on the part of Energy Agency Province of Cádiz; and Mrs. Sofía Méndez Groiss and Mrs. Inma Guerrero Alés, on the part of FAMP, who informed the Steering Committee members about:
a. The results from GreenS Project so far.

– The GPP Institutionalization Strategy
– Market research on Green products and providers.
After the coffee break, we began the second part of the work session, with the roundtable entitled “GPP: Challenges and Opportunities for Andalucía”. This roundtable counted with speakers representing the three axes framing the GPP in our country, that is, public administration, at a local level in our case, represented by the Provincial Government of Córdoba, with the presence of Mrs. ª Ana Mª López Losilla, in the name of the Delegation of Natural Environment from the Provincial Government, who gave a speech on the experience of the County Council when editing their Guidelines on GPP; the second
