Join Our EU Circular Talk “Circular Procurement: Catalyst for Biodiversity and Climate Resilience” on 20 October 2023!

Climate change and biodiversity loss are major crises we face today. Circular procurement can contribute to mitigating climate change and preserving biodiversity through prioritising sustainable products and services.

The European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform (ECESP) Leadership Group on Circular Procurement and the Leadership Group on Biodiversity and Climate will bring together key stakeholders in an inclusive dialogue on how to foster circular procurement as a catalyst for biodiversity and climate resilience.

“Put simply, circular procurement is the process by which products and services are purchased in accordance with the principles of the circular economy, and it should function as part of the wider sustainable procurement strategy of a particular organisation. Two main pillars of circular procurement are: boosting circular supply chains by increasing demand for circular products, materials and services and promoting new business models based on innovative and resource-efficient solutions.”, explains Cristina Fedato, Head of Sustainable Products and Services team at the CSCP.

During the #EUCircularTalk, city representatives will share their experiences on integrating circular procurement strategies, calculating scope 3 emissions, and using circular procurement to achieve their climate and biodiversity goals.

BioOrg, a trailblazer in cleaning buildings with bacteria, will share their circular procurement process experiences and criteria for ensuring sustainability and eco-friendliness.

Adding an international perspective, a guest speaker from outside the EU will provide a critical assessment of the environmental impact of certain technologies, such as electric cars and battery manufacturing.

Following speaker presentations, a panel discussion and a Question & Answer session will allow participants to raise questions, share thoughts, and engage with the speakers.
