Two new factsheets on circular public procurement have been published on the Circular Europe Network’s database by ACR+, overviewing good practices implemented by Schiphol Airport (The Netherlands) and ACR+ member Aalborg (Denmark).

The City of Aalborg has implemented a circular public procurement of learning environments in the municipal primary schools. The tender provided the framework for how to recycle and repair the furniture to the municipality's primary schools: instead of investing in brand new furniture and throw the old away, the task was furnishing classrooms with a mix of new, recycled and refurbished furniture.

Schiphol Airport boosts the principles of sustainability with the goal to generate zero waste by 2030. Supporting circular economy, it concluded the agreement with Philips Lighting, which has been working on a lighting retrofit at the airport based on a lighting-as-a-service business model. This business model puts focus on relationships via services instead of equipment selling.

Other recently published factsheets focus on waste collection system (Eco-island of Krk (Croatia)) and strategic development model (ACR+ member Wcycle in Maribor (Slovenia)).
