Circular economy and resource conservation are central fields of action in climate protection policy and, against the backdrop of geopolitical tensions and interrupted raw material supply chains, increasingly also in security policy. A paradigm shift is urgently needed with regard to closing material cycles. Circular production, transport, consumption and investment also consume energy and are not free of environmental pollution. That is why the reduction of total raw material input and resource consumption must be included in strategic considerations.
The environmental technology network Ecoliance Rheinland-Pfalz e.V. and ZukunftsRegion Westpfalz e.V. will jointly present exemplary strategies on February 24 that can contribute to the necessary paradigm shift. Both networks want to motivate more companies to focus more on the topic of circular economy and to participate in the results of the BMBF project Waste2Value.
