The transition towards circular economy, puts pressure on the purchasers to purchase in a circular manner. However there are many hurdles to overcome. The aim of this research is to investigate the role of the purchasers in the circular purchasing process and investigate the organisational factors that influence the purchaser. The results of this comparative case study show that purchasers that are motivated and have the ability to proactively convince project teams to purchase in a circular manner, increase circular purchasing within the organisation. Also organisational factors influencing the purchasers are identified.
