The project ChemClimCircle equips municipalities with training modules to apply circular procurement and, by this, to use non-toxic and climate-neutral products.
ChemClimCircle will address an important challenge in policy integration which is not yet on the local policy agendas: the linkage between Chemicals, Climate and Circularity issues in public procurement. To function safely in a circular economy, materials need to be circular, climate-neutral AND tox-free. Ensuring this in procurement processes within municipalities is one key for the possibility for a circular future. ChemClimCircle will: - elaborate the "ChemClimCircle concept for procurement": assess interlinks, conflicts of objectives and dependencies between circularity, chemicals risks and climate neutrality aspects in procurement - develop comprehensive guidance and training modules for municipalities (procurement specialists, decision makers and end-user departments) - develop an internal management strategy for municipalities for ChemClimCircle procurement: interview key actors, map procurement processes in the institutions and assess how the ChemClimCircle aspects could be coordinated inside the institution - develop an external management support for Eastern BSR municipalities involving all entities involved in GPP in LT and LV to Round tables - develop strategies for dialogue and networking with stakeholders: map target groups, initiate contacts and create room for larger action - organize 3 international think tank workshops with PP, AO and externals to discuss outputs & findings and receive input - promote the ChemClimCircle approach to procurement in BSR
