The RETScreen Team, developers of the free green energy deicision-making software, won the 2009 Summit Award for Leadership in Green Procurement on November 3, 2009. The award was presented in Victoria, British Columbia at the Canadian Public Procurement Council annual forum. Gregory J. Leng received the award on behalf of the RETScreen team.
The Leadership Award in Green Procurement is designed to recognise leadership and innovation in green procurement in public sector organisations, to help governments purchase goods with an environmental benefit.
The award has been launched by Summit Magazine, Canada’s magazine on public sector purchasing, in cooperation with the Environmental Choice Program and the Canadian Public Procurement Council. Summit Magazine will be running an article about the award in their November/December edition.
Over the past several years REEEP has helped fund translation of RETScreen software, which is now available in 34 languages. A new REEEP-funded project is also developing a monitoring, targeting and verification (MTV) tool for the software.
