    Circular Procurement Congress 'Mainstreaming Circular Procurement’

    The second Circular Procurement Congress was held on 18 & 19 October 2017 in Tallinn, Estonia. 134 experts attended. The Congress provided a unique opportunity to explore the latest developments and thinking on circular procurement and on mainstreaming circular procurement.

    In April 2016 the first international congress on circular procurement was held in Amsterdam. 120 experts attended from over 20 countries in Europe and around the world. The purpose of the 2016 congress was to raise awareness for the concept of circular procurement, highlight good practices and to share experiences on how circular procurement could be mainstreamed.
