Company visits looking at best practice in the area of circular procurement
Demonstrate the working methods that produce the best results in practice: The Circular procurement Best Practice Tour organised by the Association for Procurement and Business Logistics (VIB).
In the context of the Green Deal Circular Procurement, VIB and CSR CAMPUS organised a complete itinerary of circular Best Practice Tours for purchasers with an interest in circular procurement. Learning how to purchase according to a circular model through inspiring sessions on procurement projects, processes, contract documents, surveys of the market and measuring circular impact is an important basis. The willingness to purchase according to a circular model and the belief that there is a real market for circular products is further reinforced by actual examples from practice.
Organised tours took purchasers and facilitators from inside and outside the GDCA on visits to several companies and projects with special exemplary circular cases. These cases included the internationally renowned circular city office VENLO, the production of toilet paper and Satino Black cradle-to-cradle sanitary solutions, UNILIN building materials, new circular lighting models by Signify, and circular high-tech in the Flemish textile sector at Alsico and Concordia.
