The UNEP has selected three important circular categories where they believe a multistakeholder initiative will enable procurement to drive innovative and breakthrough in order to become 100% circular. These three categories are circular procurement of:

  1. Health
  2. Infrastructure
  3. ICT

The Dutch Government was approached by UNEP to take the lead in circular procurement of the category ICT. Representatives of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Water management initiated this new to be formed multi-stakeholder initiative. The initiative aims to bring both international market demand and value chain together. Creation of a significant leverage from the market side (volume) will drive a desire for partners across the value chain to collaborate and stimulate innovation towards a sustainable and circular ICT value chain.
