Brussels Capital Region newsline

ACR+ member ACR+ member Brussels-Capital Region won the 10th AER Regional Innovation Award in the framework of the series of events on "Investing in the future: new perspectives for the regions". In this edition, the Award aimed at recognising initiatives in the field of circular economy.

The jury decided to award ACR+ members Brussels-Capital Region and its initiative, the "Brussels Regional Program for a Circular Economy (BRPCE)". The programme is a regional integrated strategy of 111 co-piloted measures covering both transversal, governance, territorial and sectorial topics for delivering circular patterns at city level.

European cities clearly expressed a need for developing a broader and more coherent vision (inclusive approach) that covers all key resources and support actions while fixing priorities and setting measurable targets for delivering circular patterns within cities. The BRPCE offers a direct answer to this by providing an integrated economic strategy englobing 111 measures for delivering circularity at city level. It is the first public/private bottom-up initiative of this size implicating 3 different regional ministries, 15 different public administrations, and more than 200 local stakeholders.
