The challenges and potential of circular procurements in public construction projects
Circular public procurement is an approach of ‘greening’ procurement, which recognises the role that public authorities can play in the transition towards a circular economy.
This first white paper on circular procurement within construction provides a unique overview of the benefits of incorporating circular procurement at city and district
level, including an assessment of the associated financial benefits as well as the potential negative effects.
We see this white paper addressing some of the most crucial circular procurement questions of today and we encourage mayors and city practitioners, businesses and academia from across the world to learn from the cases in order to unlock the full potential of cities by creating a truly circular city transition through practical procurement application.
