Circular Procurement: Green Deal Circulair Aankopen - Vlaanderen Circulair

Green Deal Circular Procurement

Type of organisation or company:

Country: 
Belgium

Language for original content:

Together with a number of partner organisations, Circular Flanders and the Government of the Region of Flanders launched the Green Deal for Circular Procurement (GDCP) on 8 June 2017. Some 130 companies, local authorities and non-profit organisations took part in this landmark event. The idea is based on the Dutch 'Green Deal', which has been translated into the Flemish context. The Green Deal has its origin in the policy memorandum and letter Environment. Purchasers are still reluctant in changing their proceedings to allow reuse of -or recycled content in- products and in accepting new 'circular' contracts. With the GDCP Circular Flanders wants to take away the uncertainty and help buyers to change their procurement proceedings. In return the purchasers share their experiences in a learning network and the participants all set up 2 pilots. In the end they will become ambassadors who can inform other purchasers on the financial, social and ecological advantages of CE. Over 200 experiments will prove the success of Circular Procurement.
