Our goal is to build a sustainable and prosperous future for our region through collaborative, region-led social procurement in the renewable energy sector. Transformational social and economic benefits should reach every corner of Gippsland. The Latrobe Valley Authority (LVA) partnered with GROW Gippsland to release the GiPPI report and procurement diagram, which offer valuable insights into the benefits of social procurement. The aim of GiPPI, is to create a thriving, interconnected social procurement ecosystem in Gippsland. We invite you to join us on this exciting journey as we harness the limitless potential of renewable energy to build the tomorrow we all aspire to see.
