The new United Nations Environment Programme report has been developed as part of the UNEP work on sustainable consumption and production and continuous engagement with building circularity into our economies.

‘Building Circularity into our Economies through Sustainable Procurement’ report is aiming to introduce the role that sustainable procurement can play in accelerating the transition to circular economy and the shift towards sustainable consumption and production. The document informs how to bring more circularity in our economies at global level. It is based on the work conducted by UNEP in the field and on the experience documented by partners and governments.
