You are the accelerator
Circular procurement plays an important role in achieving an organization’s sustainability objectives. By putting a different question to the market, the buyer can accelerate the transition towards a circular economy.
Socially responsible procurement
As a professional buyer, you are expected to purchase products, services or work with maximum sustainable value. This translates into the fact that you do not only look at the price, but also at the impact on people and the environment. The government has already indicated that it wants to work on this by publishing the Manifesto Verantwoord Inkopen (Responsible Procurement) 2016-2020. Through this manifesto, all public parties will set out their ambitions in concrete terms, make them known and implement them. Within Maatschappelijk Verantwoord Inkopen (MVI) (Socially Resposible Procurement there are several themes. One of them is circular procurement.
This training helps buyers to translate their ambitions into the procurement process. Using both theory and practical examples, we explain what the circular economy is, what this new economic approach means for the buyer and what opportunities it offers for you organization. A hands-on training focused on doing it yourself and experiencing it.
