ProCirc is set up to experiment, implement and learn how circular economy and procurement can benefit the region. To fully benefit from circular opportunities and to contribute to the international development of circular economy, ProCirc conducts and supports 30 pilots to demonstrate procurement opportunities.

Each pilot aims to reduce 20-25% raw materials, waste and CO2 emissions. Insights and tools regarding specific sectors like construction, furniture and ICT will be disseminated in the North Sea region by creating an active transnational network on the topic.


Procuring organisations can stimulate circular economy using their demand to change markets. This will not only have a direct impact on the business models; innovation and economic opportunities that suppliers will create, but also on decreasing carbon emissions and the use of resources and closing product and material loops.
