Sustainable circular and bioeconomy

A sustainable circular economy involves a transition towards a new economic system. While minimising the amount of natural resources, emissions and waste, production should be optimised, business models developed and logistics improved, and consumption habits changed.

Transition towards a new economic system

The use of materials and their value is maintained through efficient cycles for as long as possible. The energy required is produced in a sustainable, efficient and zero-emission way, with minimal material waste. Both non-renewable and renewable natural resources are used sparingly.
