Circular supply chains: Reducing pollution and waste through cooperation

10 June 2021, 15:00 - 16:15

Solar energy is one of the most promising forms of renewable energy sources contributing to CO2 reduction targets. There has been an ever-growing deployment of solar photovoltaic panels. However, as the PV market grows, so will its demand for raw materials, as well as its waste output and related pollution. Lifetime extension of products, components and materials, realised via reuse and repair is one of the cornerstones of a circular economy – a concept with vast potential for pollution mitigation.

How to reduce the environmental impact of solar PV modules and how to develop a circular value chain in the solar PV sector? The solution lies in a better collaboration of all actors in the supply chain.

CIRCUSOL organized a session to openly discuss environmental and economic challenges regarding circularity in the solar PV sector. The speakers will shed light on good practices which can inspire also other sectors. 

The event is organised under the umbrella of the EU Green Week 2021.

You can register here.

How to include NBS in public tenders

30 June 2021, 12:00 - 13:00

Are you:

  • A public procurer looking to integrate Nature Based Solutions (NBS) in your tenders?; or
  • A Nature Based Enterprise (NBE)/ a company active in the NBS sector?

On 30 June (12:00-13:00 CET), the Connecting Nature Enterprise Summit will be bringing together public buyers and companies working in the NBS sector to share best practice on the public procurement of NBS.

Including NBS in public tenders or responding to public tenders for NBS can be challenging for both public authorities and suppliers. In this capacity building session, we will be sharing some practical tools to help procurers and Nature Based Enterprise work together more effectively to deliver NBS projects in cities.

Elsa Durieux, Senior Officer at ICLEI Europe, will be joined by Lene Stolpe Meyer from the City of Fredrksberg and Hans Mueller from Helix Pflanzen GmbH to share insights and experience in response to questions commonly asked by public authorities and companies involved in public tenders for NBS. The session will be set up as an interactive FAQ so that the content shared can be tailored to the audience's questions.
