The purpose of this site is to provide a targeted path for each stakeholder group with the tools and resources developed under the ProCirc project and which can support the acceleration of a transition to a more circular economy and public procurement.

The project outputs are classified in five categories which can be found in the menu on the left:

  • Circular procurement guidance
  • Circular procurement tools and methodologies
  • Circular procurement cases and examples
  • Value chain engagement
  • Upscaling

There is a dedicated section for each project output, highlighting its relevance for various stakeholder groups and providing a description of the output along with its support for circular public procurement. The five main stakeholder groups considered are:

  • Procurers (private and public). They are key players in the procurement process, responsible for achieving the goals of procurement. For them guidance and training to incorporate circular principles into tenders is provided.
  • Managers (public and private) and internal decision makers. They are responsible for setting the ambition. It is specifically relevant for managers to understand their own organisation’s preparedness in order to support the adoption of circular procurement. For them tools and showcases are provided to effectively implement circular procurement within their respective organizations.
  • Policy makers at local, national, and European levels. They establish the boundaries and directions that influence what is possible or required in the procurement process. For them pilot case studies and policy recommendations are provided to help understand the interlinkages between policy, strategy, regulatory frameworks, and the impact on opportunities for circular procurement.
  • Suppliers and value chain actors. This group includes producers, intermediaries, and business network organisations. They play a vital role in enabling circular procurement. Showcases and circular business model route maps are provided to empower them to make the shift towards circular products and services.
  • Other stakeholders. This category comprises public authority departments (such as finance, legal, or environmental departments), consultancies, network organizations, research centers, and NGOs focused on the circular economy. They can benefit from tools and methodologies provided.

The scheme below can help to identify the right information section on this site for each stakeholder group. Where a stakeholder group is circled, the section may still be relevant, but to a slightly lesser extent.
