Webinar: Procuring more sustainable vehicle chargers

Join this webinar on the 8th of March at 10.00 to learn more on how the procurement of electric vehicle chargers can become more circular and sustainable. For more information and to register, please contact

The growing market of electric vehicle chargers (EVCs) has led to increasing environmental impacts that are at the risk of being overlooked. The material flows emerging, are leaving an environmental impact as the chargers are being produced. Europe is the second-largest EV charger market and the forecast estimates that the numbers of electric vehicles will increase exponentially in the next few years. Similarly, the demand for EV chargers will follow, and by 2030, over 3 million EV chargers will be needed in Europe.

To address this issue, the Interreg NSR ProCirc project is setting up a collaborative process with the goal to deepen the knowledge about how the EVC procurement can become more circular and sustainable. The outcome of the process will be expressed in the shape of a Joint Statement of Demand (JSD). By producing a Joint Statement of Demand, consisting of common demands on EVCs when procuring, we set the ambition for future circular tenders.

To start the process of the JSD, a first webinar was held the 2nd of February. You can watch the recorded session here.
