In the period 2017 – 2020 the Circular PP project has worked on promoting circular public procurement in the Baltic Sea area by doing pilots, research and capacity building events. For more information please look at the final newsletter or help yourself abound the website.

The road to Circular Public Procurement

Throughout its evolution, our industrial economy has never moved beyond one fundamental characteristic: A linear model of resource consumption that follows a take-make-dispose pattern. Companies extract materials, apply energy and labor to manufacture a product and sell it to a consumer—who then discard it when it no longer serves its purpose. A circular economy approach is an alternative to this model. It aims to keep products and materials in the value chain for a longer period and to recover raw materials after the lifetime of the products for their next use.
