We have launched new Circular Procurement and Supply eLearning to support the transition to net zero. This eLearning was developed by Zero Waste Scotland, as one of the 11 partners within the Interreg programme, ProCirc project. This supports transnational partnerships across different countries around the North Sea Region. The ProCirc project looks to scale up the development of circular business models, products, and services through implementing changes to public and private procurement.

About the Circular Procurement and Supply eLearning

The eLearning comprises of 9 modules (Welcome; Circular Economy; Circular Procurement & Supply; Early Collaboration; Sourcing & Supplying; Identifying and Improving Outcomes; Circular Examples; Top Tips for Buyers and Suppliers; and Call to Action).

It is available from the Sustainable Procurement Tools platform and will take approximately 1.5 hours to complete.

  • Users will need to be registered on the platform, and login to access it. This also enables users to generate and download a certificate to confirm that they have completed the training
  • The training is largely interactive
  • Users can complete the training all at once, or exit and return at a later date to the point from where they left off
  • For help to register and login to the platform, a user guide and short video are available
