In a circular economy it is important to have circular innovations, products and services on offer. Yet just as important are buyers who want to procure and stimulate these innovations. Circular procurement is an important lever to grow the market for circular products and service.

In 2017 Circular Flanders started a Green Deal on Circular Procurement (GDCP) toghether with  The Shift, VVSG and BBL. More than 150 organisations activly engaged in circulair procurement through experiments or facilitation. 

We will share the results and learnings from this Geen Deal on this website. We aim to have the English version ready by September 2020.

Logo Interreg North Sea ProCircAfter a succesful green Deal on Circular Procurement, we look ahead and across borders. Circular Flanders is a partner in the  Interreg North Sea Region project Procirc. This allows our Flemish procurers to keep learning, experimenting and exchanging in a European context.
