Factsheet Circular procurement municipality of Amersfoort
The Municipality of Amersfoort is participating in the Green Deal and is aiming for 10% circular procurement by 2020. Two large projects have now started: the renovation of the town hall and the construction of the new Amersfoort ring road (western link). Various initiatives have also started to stimulate circular procurement across the municipality, such as the use of ambassadors and an online knowledge platform. (June 2017)
The municipality had previously organised pilots, such as the circular economy tender for office chairs and the furnishing of Het Groene Huis. The municipality is aiming to use these two big projects for a significant scale-up. Initiatives have also been devised to stimulate circular procurement.
