The partners of the InCEPPP project from the Czech Republic (BIC Brno e INCIEN CZ), Spain (BIOAZUL) y Eslovakia (INCIEN SK) had their third face-to-face meeting in Prague on May 4 and 5. During the two days, they have been able to continue working on the development of methodologies, manuals and training on public and private circular hiring/purchasing.
After the publication of the “Methodology on circular public and private procurement” in Spain and Slovakia, the consortium participated in its launch in the Czech Republic, in a face-to-face event organized jointly by INCIEN Academy, the Czech “Circular Hotspot” in which we presented the new methodologies and tools that we are preparing. It was a close event in which we had the opportunity to talk about circularity in an international context and discuss good practices in each country together with the participants.
In the coming months we will share the details about the possibility of participating in the training on circularity in purchases we are preparing for autumn, where participants will learn about circularity as well as strategies to train other professionals interested in Circular Economy and circularity in the field of public and private procurement. Participating in these events:
Methodology on circular public and private procurement
The methodology describes the basic characteristics of the circular economy and the current state of global and European environmental limits. The transition from a linear economy of “make-use-dispose” to a circular economy can be achieved thanks to principles such as reducing and re-evaluating our needs, reusing and repairing individual products, new forms of use such as renting or sharing. The methodology also introduces circular public procurement in relation to responsible public procurement and recommends new circular business models. At the same time, it discusses the benefits and problems associated with circular contracting and purchasing, defines the basic steps for contracting authorities, and provides specific advice.
The legislative framework in Spain for the application of circular principles in public procurement is also presented. Likewise, the Methodology deals with four sectors: water, wood, furniture and waste. Then, the theoretical part is complemented with examples of good practices in Spain and other European countries, because inspiration is important in this regard.
