Procurement toolbox

The ProCirc project aims to create a circular procurement toolbox to provide procurers with tools, methods and knowledge to integrate circularity in all process phases. This makes it easier for them to find out which tools exist and which are most suitable for their procurement projects.

Are you a procurer and want to get a first impression and asses if these tools might fit your needs? Take a look a these six elevator pitches given by toolowners!

CO2 Performance Ladder

Link to the website.

The CO2 Performance Ladder is a proven CO2 management system and sustainable procurement tool. By using the CO2 Performance Ladder as a procurement tool, the commissioning party award advantage to companies that ambitiously and continuously make effort of carbon emissions reduction within their organisation and their projects, with the CO2 Performance Ladder CO2 management system.

CO2 reduction and circularity often go hand in hand as carbon emissions are almost always inherent in lifecycles when fossil fuels are used. The Ladder requires that organisations collaborate with their supply chain and that they develop and share knowledge and data. Furthermore, supply chain analyses (LCA) is required on the higher levels of the Ladder.

Also, the Ladder encourages cooperation and a structural dialogue between the public and private sector. By using the CO2 Performance Ladder the commissioning party uses their procurement power to stimulate carbon reduction and circular thinking in its projects and to direct investments towards a low carbon and circular economy.
