To function safely in a circular economy, materials must be circular, climate-neutral and toxic-free. Ensuring this in procurement processes within municipalities is one key to the possibility of a circular future.

ChemClimCircle project will:

– elaborate on the ChemClimCircle concept for procurement and assess interlinks, conflicts of objectives and dependencies between circularity, chemicals risks and climate neutrality aspects in procurement,

– develop guidance and training modules for municipalities (procurement specialists, decision-makers and end-user departments),

– develop strategies for dialogue and networking with stakeholders: map target groups, initiate contacts and create room for more significant action,

– organise three international think tank workshops to discuss outputs and findings.
