Zero Waste Scotland - Procuring for: Repair, Re-use and Remanufacturing
This guidance, which supports the transition to a more ‘Circular Economy’, is intended to help those responsible for the commissioning, specifying and procurement of products, equipment and services embed the benefits arising from a relevant and proportionate focus on:
- Repair (including durability),
- Re-use (preparing for re-use which may involve minor refurbishment) and
- Remanufacturing
and related intervention measures, which may include consideration of alternative procurement and business models.
This focus concentrates on extending the useful life of these products or equipment procured or used within services procured and delivering the required function in the most effective manner.

On our plate today: healthy, sustainable food choices (Executive summary)
Funded by the European Commission (EC) LIFE+ programme, LiveWell for LIFE is a ground-breaking project that not only set out to show how low carbon diets can help achieve a reduction of at least 25% in greenhouse gas emissions from the EU food supply chain but also showed how these can be healthy, nutritious and affordable.

The project also aimed to influence policies and practices to ease the adoption of low-carbon diets in the EU – and in particular in our pilot countries: France, Spain and Sweden – and ultimately, to put the issue of sustainable diets on the EU policy agenda.
