ZORG Leuven wants to continue to focus on sustainable purchasing and innovation. Our ultimate goal is a purchasing strategy that generates as little waste as possible. We want to buy products with a long life span and which are easy to recycle, and we want to opt for production that uses sustainable energy sources and raw materials that are extracted in an environmentally friendly and socially just manner.
During this project, we want to analyse how we can integrate circularity into our purchasing strategy of reproduction materials. In concrete terms, it is about hiring sustainable printing, copying and scanning capacity, and management and reporting software.
For this, we entered into a dialogue with the sector and our existing suppliers. After all, good cooperation throughout the chain is crucial to obtaining good, circular solutions.
The study included an analysis of the procurement procedure from the preparatory phase with market prospection, the assessment of legality and feasibility, the drawing up of the tender, the assessment of the applications and tenders and the assessment of conformity at start-up.
In order to integrate circularity into the tendering procedure, ZORG Leuven finally opted for an existing framework agreement with the circular objectives in a side-letter.
