Welcome to the registration for the #EUCircularTalk: “Circular Procurement: Catalyst for Biodiversity and Climate Resilience” 

Biodiversity and Climate change are interconnected issues, with ecosystems and biodiversity playing a crucial role in regulating our climate. Circular procurement can contribute to mitigating climate change and preserving biodiversity by minimizing greenhouse gas emissions and protecting natural habitats.

The ECESP Leadership Group on Circular procurement & the Leadership Group on Biodiversity and Climate invite you to their next joint #EUCircularTalk on 20 October 2023 at 10:00 – 12:30 CET. Our goal is to foster an inclusive dialogue and collaboration with stakeholders outside of the Leadership Groups, bringing together a diverse range of participants to work towards our circular economy goals. In this session, we’ll delve into the synergies between Circular Procurement and Biodiversity/Climate, two crucial topics for sustainable development. Circular Procurement focuses on sourcing goods and services with minimal environmental impact throughout their lifecycle. By promoting the use of recycled materials, extending product lifetimes, and encouraging responsible waste management, we can reduce resource consumption and transition to a sustainable economy.

The event will feature a comprehensive agenda, starting with a general introduction by a representative from a renowned research institution, highlighting the link between circular procurement and biodiversity/climate. We will also hear from city/municipality representatives sharing their experiences on integrating circular procurement strategies, calculating scope 3 emissions, and using circular procurement to achieve their climate and biodiversity goals. BioOrg, a trailblazer in cleaning buildings with bacteria, will share their circular procurement process experiences and criteria for ensuring sustainability and eco-friendliness. Adding an international perspective, a guest speaker from outside the EU will provide a critical assessment of the environmental impact of certain technologies, such as electric cars and battery manufacturing.
