The circular economy includes redesigning processes, products and new business models, to optimise the use of resources.
Eco-efficiency in the management of natural capital has gained increasing importance in society and special attention by national and European government entities.
The European Commission estimates that the recent legislation package on circular economy - based on measures to prevent waste, to reuse materials and other “circular” actions - could lead to a net saving of 600 billion Euros for all the companies in the European Union.

The transition to a more circular economy, where the value of products, materials and resources stays in the economy for as long as possible and waste production is minimised, is a key contribution to the development of a sustainable, low-carbon, resource-efficient and competitive economy.
This transition is the opportunity to transform our economy and to create competitive and sustainable advantages.
