Circular Economy in Urban Areas | Wednesday, March 17th, 13:30 - 15:30 ONLINE

Using key insights from the national initiative Circular Cities Switzerland (including actual material flow analyses), Marco Grossmann from ecos would like to explore ICTs potential contribution and develop concrete project ideas to support the circular transition in Switzerland. Public circular procurement has been identified as direct leverage point for cities in collaboration with companies to propel innovative solutions.


  • Challenge 1: given the most relevant material flows in Swiss cities, how may Technology and Digital best support a more sustainable and circular management of these flows? 

  • Challenge 2: how may Technology and Digital actors and public authorities jointly use public circular procurement to create innovation partnerships?

  • Challenge 1: how can Digital Technology help effectively monitor and communicate decarbonisation progress of Swiss companies?

  • Challenge 2: how can Digital Tools help foster cross-sectoral collaboration and facilitate the exchange of carbon data to decarbonise corporate value chains?
