Circular public procurement (CPP) is one way to increase sustainability and circularity in public spending. As previous research focuses primarily on procurement, more insight is needed on the latter stages CPP. Real-life examples of CPP implementation are also required to promote the concept to practitioners, improve governance, and add depth to the literature.
The study “Implementation and management of a circular public procurement contract for furniture” (https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/frsus.2023.1136725/full), therefore, provides in-depth knowledge of CPP implementation and management by analyzing a case of circular furniture flows and its implications for the procuring organization.
The essay Interior architecture in the circular economy: Quality and sustainability aspects of interior design in public environments https://urn.kb.se/resolve?urn=urn:nbn:se:su:diva-183697 investigates composite design qualities in interior design and how these can be made more sustainable in the circular economy. Greater demands are placed on a reuse of products. Climate change requires us to slow down our consumption. Working life is moving towards a more flexible physical environment where people must constantly make choices.
