Circular Public Procurement in the Nordic Countries
Good examples of circular procurement were identified in Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Norway. Potential sectors for circular procurement were identified, with relatively high purchasing volume and opportunities for creating a circular economy-based business. The cases examined in this study imply that performance-based procurement, the use of life cycle costing and criteria concerning the reuse and recycling of materials have promoted circular procurement. In addition, procuring services instead of products could lead to environmental benefits.
