In Beyond the Perfect Storm, IEMA’s business briefing on the Corporate Sustainability Challenge, we highlighted that the circular economy represents a net material cost saving opportunity of between $340bn and $380bn a year to the EU. With procurement featuring among IEMA’s list of core ingredients in the transformation to sustainability, there is a strong case for exploring how a circular approach to public procurement can be a potential key driver for a transition to a circular economy.
This edition of the Circular Economy in Practice webinar series looked at the insights from a Swedish multi-stakeholder project considering the implementation of circular public procurement.
During this session you will obtain:
- An overview of the project findings and the managerial toolbox developed during a Swedish research study entitled PROCEED (=Public PROcurement with a Circular Economy EDge);
- Insights and recommendations from the research, private and public sector organisations that participated in the project;
- opportunity to connect with experts at the forefront of circular public procurement innovation.
- Emanuela, Vanacore, Circular Economy MBA, Researcher, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden;
- Mats Williander, Senior Researcher, RISE Research Institutes of Sweden;
- Elina Persson, Sustainability Strategist, Helsingborg municipality;
- Sebastian Rudenstam, Co-Founder & Chief Business Development Officer, Beleco.
The webinar is suitable for anyone working in procurement and sustainability.
