Public procurement and the purchasing of services, works and supplies cover about 14 % of European gross domestic product (GDP). Procurement initiatives, tools and guidance therefore have tremendous power and make products and services greener and more sustainable. The assessment carried out in this study provides results on the applicability of ongoing initiatives and shows how they contribute to the European Commission´s Action Plan on the Circular Economy. With the proposed recommendations the involved parties are offered possibilities and options for a better approach in the future.
