This short video explains what circular procurement is about and why it has the potential to generate value for your organisation, your suppliers and the environment.
Furthermore, this article offers a few more, basic insights about:
- How to develop circular procurement processes
- How to find solutions at all levels of circular procurement: technical, organisational, and financial
- The strategic relevance of circular procurement
Finally, I’d like to highlight this 8 steps plan for enhancing circularity within your procurement organisation. There is also a more extensive and comprehensive version of this 8 steps plan. However, this one is rather suited for those who really want to dive deep into this topic. The 8 steps are:
Step 1 Circular Procurement: Why and What?
Step 2 Internal Organisation and Alignment
Step 3 Formulating your Question
Step 4 Collaboration
Step 5 Tendering Procedure
Step 6 Measuring and Assessing Circularity
Step 7 Securing Circularity
Step 8 Managing Circular Contracts
