Circular Procurement Policy

Circular Yokohama procures and purchases goods and services necessary for its business operation in accordance with the following principles.

  1. Local First
    In order to realize the local circular economy in Yokohama, we prioritize local businesses and professionals in Yokohama when purchasing goods and services.
  2. Circularity
    When procuring goods and services, we give priority to reduce and reuse, and even when new goods need to be purchased, we give preference to up-cycled and recycled goods and services that contribute to the circular economy.
  3. Fairness
    We place importance on the social aspect of the circular economy and actively purchase goods produced by local welfare facilities.
