Our member Brussels Environment, in collaboration with ACR+, is organising the international conference “Circular Economy in practice: Rethinking our production and consumption models”.  This event will be held on 11 May 2016 in Brussels.

Participants will have the opportunity to learn more and discuss about the role of citizens, businesses and reuse economy in finding solutions to meet consumers’ needs in a world of limited resources. One of the thematic focuses will be on reuse, recycling and function-oriented business models. Furthermore, specific example of new production and consumption models will be presented.

Please note that following the conference, the European Week for Waste Reduction (LIFE+) awards ceremony will take place in the evening to reward the most outstanding actions of the 2015 edition. You are also warmly invited to this event.

Background information

In a world of limited resources, the transition to a Circular Economy certainly represents a necessary change from our current linear economy. Considering the importance of developing a circular economy at EU level, the European Commission has released in December its “Circular Economy Package” with the aim to boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs.

Brussels-Capital Region, willing to achieve similar aims on its territory, is currently preparing its “Circular Economy Regional Program” (Programme Régional en Économie Circulaire – PREC). This plan sets a strong focus on reuse, recycling and function-oriented business model. The Region is also developing a new “Resource and Waste Management Plan” (Plan de Gestion des Ressources et des Déchets), with an emphasis on reuse, preparing for reuse and repair.
