How do you choose an ideal circular procurement project?

When you first start with circular procurement, it’s important to choose a pilot carefully.
A successful pilot can help convince others, but even if something goes wrong, you can use the lessons learned in a following circular procurement project.

Our quick assessment poses six questions to help you determine the success rate of your specific procurement project, and gives you immediate advice.

Some tips:

  • Make sure that your organisation’s and your project’s circular ambitions are clear, also for the supplier
  • Choose a product group that lends itself well to circular procurement (market supply, complexity of the chain, lifespan, contract terms, etc.)
  • Procurement projects with limited risk (low costs) and visible impact are well suited for pilots
  • Make sure the project has no urgent deadlines, so you don't have to rush

Ask yourself the following six questions when considering a specific procurement project, and give a score from 1 to 10. At the end of the test, you'll be given a total score and advice.
