WCEF 2019: The challenges and potentials of circular procurement in cities

Posted by aclimaadmin | julio 6, 2019 | Noticias del Sector

Increasing population growth and urbanisation intensifies the pressure on cities globally. In addition, resources are used inefficiently in the current linear system, which makes cities largely unsustainable. Considering their high concentration of citizens and businesses, and the ability of city administrations to enact large societal transitions, cities should seize their potential as cradles and catalysts for circular change.

Two weeks ago, EIT Climate-KIC’s Circular Cities project hosted a side session on Innovative Circular Procurement in Cities at the World Circular Economy Forum (WCEF) in Helsinki, Finland. The session introduced five speakers with hands-on expertise in circular procurement and the rationale for an approach to circularity in cities.

In order to highlight the important role of public authorities in the transition to a circular economy, a white paper on circular procurement in public construction projects was launched at the session. The report was produced as part of the EIT Climate-KIC Circular Cities project and was launched by Leona Silberstein, City of Helsinki.
