Institut economie circulaire 80px


On 18 September 2018, ACR+ member Institut national de l’économie circulaire has launched a new operational programme on procurement and circular economy, developed in cooperation with Grand Paris Metropolis and Observatoire des Achats Responsables (the national observatory for sustainable procurement), inspired by the Dutch Green Deal case.  The main aim of the programme is to boost circular economy by integrating it in procurement. In particular, the programme will focus on:

  • Creating and sharing knowledge: creating a framework to experiment and look for solutions, to share knowledge and good practices and learn from projects already implemented;
  • Favouring real impacts: on the development of circular goods and services offer on the market, on resource use, on CO2 emissions linked to participant’s procurement and job creation;
  • Raising awareness and convincing participants, public authorities, and other stakeholders of the existing legal and technical possibilities regarding circular procurement, its economic, social and environmental advantages as well as the stimulating role of public and private procurement in developing circular economy.

The programme will gather 30 participants, both from public and private sectors, who will benefit from the experimentation framework and expert support on the various aspects linked to circular procurement. Good practices and experiences will be shared during meetings but also via the future online platform, which will include a separate space dedicated to the programme.
