Toronto looking for supplier to draw circular economy roadmap

The City of Toronto has issued an invitation to prospective suppliers to submit bids to develop Toronto’s First Circular Economy Road Map Strategy and Implementation Plan.

The City of Toronto is working towards a goal of zero waste and a circular economy. As Canada’s largest city, the scale and scope of the City of Toronto’s operations provide an opportunity to make a powerful impact. By taking a circular economy approach to City operations, Toronto can maximize resources and reduce waste, while building a more resilient, inclusive, and green city.

To drive innovation and the growth of a circular economy in Toronto, the City established a Circular Economy & Innovation Unit within the Solid Waste Management Services Division, making it one of the first municipalities in North America to form a dedicated circular economy team.

The purpose of the Negotiated Request for Proposals is to select a qualified supplier to assist the City of Toronto in developing Toronto’s first Circular Economy Road Map strategy and implementation plan to guide Toronto’s transition to becoming a circular economy city. Suppliers are encouraged to attend an optional meeting to familiarize themselves with the requirements on August 10, 2023 at 10:30 AM, EST Toronto.

Bids must be submitted through the City Online Procurement System prior to the submission deadline. All communications relating to the Negotiated Request for Proposals must be submitted to the City of Toronto’s Procurement Contact using the internal messaging function of the City Online Procurement System.
