The project Interreg NSR ProCirc is set up to experiment, implement, and learn about circular procurement. During 4,5 years, the ProCirc partners have initiated and supported more than 30 circular procurement pilots. The project has developed and promoted several tools and guides for circular procurement, facilitated Communities of Practice, and gained valuable experiences and new insights on how to accelerate circular economy through procurement.

Do you want to learn more about their circular procurement journey, be inspired to take action, and connect with others? Join the online event  "Circular procurement: No time to waste!"  on 18 April 2023 from 10:00 to 12:00 CEST. The plenary sessions will be held in English and the breakout sessions in English, Dutch, Danish and Norwegian/Swedish.


10.00 - 10.15 Welcome and introduction

10.15 - 10.55 From one circular pilot to circular economy on everybody’s lips: Break-out session - ProCirc partners will share their experiences, challenges and success factors for organisational change management towards implementing circular procurement.

10.55 - 11.00 Break

11.00 - 11.40 Setting goals & monitoring: how to measure impact: Break-out session - Monitoring and reporting are vital to determine whether circular interventions worked and what impact they have in both practical and policy implementation terms. ProCirc partners will share examples and challenges around monitoring & reporting experiences. The idea is to exchange experiences and share how these and other challenges have been overcome.

11.40 - 11.55 How to scale adoption through Joint Statements of Demand: ProCirc has developed three Joint Statements of Demand (JSD) which present a shared set of circular asks that procurers are committed to including in their future tenders. A JSD approach recognizes that harnessing collective purchasing power can drive innovation and accelerate a shift to a sustainable future. ProCirc will explain the approach taken and publicly launch its JSDs covering the product categories of professional clothing, office furniture and electric vehicle chargers. Other procurers will be called on to become signatories to the JSDs to increase the collective impact.

11.55 - 12.00 Closing
