Collaborative Research Seminar Series: The creation and control of annual report disclosures

1.15 pm – 3.00 pm A Building, Campus Valla, Room 3C:817 and online

Presenters: Linus Axén, Assistant Lecturer and Pernilla Broberg, Senior Lecturer, at the Division of Business Administration (FEK), Department of Management and Engineering (IEI). Public procurement is an important policy tool to stimulate innovation for the circular economy because it represents 17% of Sweden’s GDP and thereby half of the public sector’s spending. It has the potential to transform markets through demand, and especially those markets in which the government is an important customer. However, public procurement has been largely overlooked by policy makers and scholars alike and has only recently started gaining traction as an area of interest. Our practical aim for this research is therefore to uncover the challenges that procurers and suppliers face when circularity is included as a requirement in the procurement process. From these challenges we dive deeper into practice to unpack how circular markets are shaped through public procurement and circular business models. We adopt an abductive approach and focus on the case of the market for circular work clothing. Our data collection includes 1) a qualitative process study in which we follow the procurement process of a municipality for a year; and 2) a qualitative study on the wider market and its main actors. We have thus far collected about 45 interviews, numerous observations and over 1000 pages of secondary archival data, including company circularity goals, policy briefs and tender documents. Our data collection is still ongoing and will be finalized in May 2022. Our preliminary findings show that both suppliers and procurers face a challenge of perceived complexity in relation to the process. For suppliers this is the perceived complexity of the procurement process, while for the procurers this mainly lies in the perceived complexity of the procurement law. These perceptions lead to a restrained dialogue between procurers and suppliers, because of which the two actors may not achieve an optimal circular solution.
