Work Package 3 (WP3) explores the role of public sector organisations, their strategies, plans, and operational activities for a Circular Economy (CE) transition. Attention to date on the CE has been largely confined to the private sector, especially manufacturing. However, a full CE requires input also from the public sector, both in terms of its relationship to the private sector (e.g., through both purchasing and regulation) and its own operational activity. It is the aim of WP3 to examine public sector engagement with the CE via the following questions: 1) How are public sector bodies incorporating circularity into their own behaviour and what is the role of practices and strategies in bringing this about? 2) How can circularity be assessed in public sector organisations and what indicators are useful in measuring the extent of circularity in public sector organisations?
