Scaling Circular Business

Correo electrónico:

As part of the European Commission’s continuous effort to transform Europe's economy into a more sustainable one and to implement the ambitious Circular Economy Action Plan, on 27 June 2018, the European Commission launched a platform for scaling circular businesses across Europe. The platform is to lead the way in boosting  the transition towards a circular economy among small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in Europe.

The platform is composed of a set of general and material and sector specific circular solutions. While some obstacles to a circular economy are generic, different sectors and materials face specific challenges due to the particularities of the value chain. If you are interested in any of these solutions, the platform will assist you in setting up effective collaborations with the providers.

The circular economy is of growing importance for Europe and receives more and more support from policymakers and larger business in the European Union.  The European Commission also understands that, given their economic importance and their accumulated environmental impact, there cannot be an effective transition towards a circular economy without European SMEs. The platform is launched to make use of the momentum and to close the gap between circular innovations and traditional ways of working.

Are you an SME based in Europe recognising the necessity and opportunity to contribute to the circular economy? Visit the platform at and look for the solution that fits your needs.
