The inclusion of circularity and Life cycle analysis into purchasing procedures with a prospect of extended life-cycle and product customization can generally be applied to the majority of procurement procedures which are related to the development of new sustainable products and services. This is highly related to the specific objective of the policy instrument: “Making the economy circular” and “Reducing risks and valuing environmental Assets.”.
