Our work to create a circular economy is essential to achieve a net zero Wales by 2050. This means reducing waste, re-using materials for as long as possible, and creating new more sustainable business models.

Our new Sustainable Procurement Market Engagement Guidance can support public sector organisations move away from the traditional ‘take-make-waste’ procurement model and instead look for ways in which we can keep products in use for longer. Market engagement will be critical to working with public sector suppliers to deliver a net zero public sector in Wales by 2030.

As a purchaser, your ability to define and successfully source products and services in a circular and sustainable manner is dependent on your awareness and knowledge of the supplier base, their capabilities, capacity, and available technologies.

Alongside the main guide, there is further detail within our sector specific guides.
