Highlights

Led by Rijkswaterstaat (Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Waterworks) and involving ACR+ and its members Zero Waste Scotland, OVAM, and Aalborg, the ProCirc project had its kick-off meeting in May 2019. ACR+’ role is to support the other partners’ activities, in particular: gathering and developing criteria and monitoring instruments to facilitate the tendering of circular solutions; training of public procurers to include circularity in their procurement; establishing Communities of Practice gathering experts on circular procurement as well as creating and supporting opportunities for buyers and suppliers to dialogue regarding circular solutions; implementing pilot procurement actions aiming to reduce CO2 emissions, the need for virgin material and waste generation; developing roadmaps for circular procurement and networking of circular procurement initiatives to upscale the procurement process.
 
ACR+ started to gather information from its members about circular procurement strategies and practices and to inform them about the possibility to follow the project and participate as observers in ProCirc’s activities.
