Procurement plays a key role in the development of the circular economy in the product engineering service sector. Also procurers can stimulate the market to arrive at a circular supply by specifically asking for circular solutions. Circular procurement seeks ways and steps to close the cycles in product categories. It’s Important during the process is cooperation with and learning from market parties when possible.
At this stage, the learning process is very important in order to align the goal of circular economy. The circular economy is still in the developing stage for the engineering services Industries/companies.
Collaboration therefore helps practitioners to find out why it works, where it works and how to get the best outcome. We do not know exactly where this will lead us but we still can take the first steps towards more resource efficiency through circular procurement.Product engineering services can be defined as an engineering consulting activity, which uses various hardware, embedded, software, mechanical, design engineering and IT services for the research and development of products.
