The Role of Circular Economy in the Oversaturated Fashion Industry

There’s no doubt that clothes and fashion have long been an integral part of almost every aspect of our culture and society. The global fashion industry is estimated to be worth around 2,6 trillion euros, which represents 2% of the world’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Nevertheless, the sector’s significant use of finite resources and materials, makes it the second most destructive industry, after oil, for the environment. Considering this, the…

Circular Economy: The Face of Rural Territories

Circular Economy is a consolidated theme in the EU agenda as well as in the agenda ofother regional and national institutions. Nonetheless, it has been less explored andimplemented in the mainly rural regions, even though the challenges these regions faceare crucial, especially those related with the agri-food sector. In rural communities, the main challenges are very deeply linked with the challengesfaced by the current agricultural system. Some of the main…

The Influence of Various Schools of Thought on Circular Economy

The concept of Circular Economics has received tremendous interest from policymakers, researchers, and academia in recent years worldwide. It has been believed that this concept dates to the 1980s in European Union when Germany and the Netherlands introduced waste preventoria and reduction schemes to the Dutch Parliament. Later, several steps were taken, and initiatives were introduced to accelerate the transition towards C.E. in E.U. Meanwhile, China’s central government accepted the…

Why do we need a Circular Economy

Our planet’s natural resources are declining due to an unsustainable economic growth, fast urbanization, rapid global population growth, and mass production. Every year, 100 billion tonnes of materials enter the global market, from which only 8.6% are recycled. From 200 years back until now, the dominant economic model was the take-make – waste or so called a linear economy model. The traditional economy model resulted in serious problems such as…

Circular Economy Indicators

An economic indicator is a statistic about an economic activity that allows to analyze current performance and predicate the future performance that can be used to measure the change in a phenomenon or process. According to U.N. (2017), “indicators are signposts of change along the development path. They describe how to track intended results and are critical for monitoring and evaluation”. Indicators can lead to simplifying and clarifying information available…

Circular economy in Europe: alliance building on the radar

One of the main buzzwords that resonates from the talks about circular economy is the term “collaboration” on multiple fronts, among different actors and at various levels of governance. Building bridges is indeed an extremely crucial engine in the creation of a well-oiled circular machine. However, turning this principle into a pragmatic action is not that simple and some territories might be better equipped or with ideal existing conditions that…

Circular economy and Regions: how do they become familiar with each other?

Circular economy is often perceived and described as a complex system, in need of a new set of skills, knowledge and expertise channelled at structurally reorganising the existing mechanism of today’s economy. This is in fact undoubtedly true. Moving to a circular model implies growing responsibilities mainly focused on re-examining the allocation, use and type of resources, seeking and providing new forms of support, devising new policy frameworks, coordinating the…

Circular economy and climate change: what’s the underlying thread?

Recently, we all have witnessed that the concepts of circular economy and climate change have started to make their way in the current talks in combination with each other, in the definition of what would be the preliminary conditions for a successful strategy to move out of the current crisis and avoid the potential threat of its consequences. Those that at first seem to be two separate and stand-alone aspects…

Quality labelling: a weapon to direct our consumption patterns towards circularity

Society and businesses are starting to realise that the resources, needed for making commercial products, are not infinite. The value of resources is still being addressed as a ‘take-make-waste’ focus, which is also a synonym for a ‘linear economy’. Powerful to establish a circular economy in the EU, the transition must be enhanced in each different product market. Meaning no industries or products can be left behind in the transition…

Part II – Policy Lab with stakeholders: what has been unearthed?

How can we make sure that the transition towards a circular economy in Europe is as effective as possible?

US re-joining the Paris Agreement: what happened and what’s next

It has become common knowledge that climate change is a crisis that requires immediate attention and solutions. Yet, the pathway of collaboration towards reversing the damages caused so far has been interrupted by former US President Donald Trump. In this regard, he signed the withdrawal of the US from the Paris Agreement, an international binding pact signed by 196 countries in 2015, which aims at limiting global warming to below…

Debunking myths about sustainability

2 truths and 1 lie: a game, a way to communicate sustainability Who said that a sustainable lifestyle is all work and no fun? Definitely, this is not the approach of the European Commission, since Vice President, Frans Timmermans, participated in a Facebook LIVE event to play the game “2 truths 1 lie”. The public was composed of many environment-enthusiasts, such as two Climate Pact Ambassadors, the civil society and…

POMOCA and SkinAlp: a real example of circularity

Circularity has increasingly become a widespread approach in recent years. Circular economy (CE) aims to a more sustainable economic system where all waste, by-products, and end-of-life products are constantly reused, remanufactured and/or recycled resulting in a closed-loop system that minimizes the use of resources and the production of waste, pollution, and carbon emissions. In this context, the collaboration between POMOCA and Skinalp represents the perfect example of circularity where the…

The European Map of Circular Economy

European Countries are unique. Each of them with a characterful history, culture, and sociopolitical structure, that form the distinctive features of their current identity. This fascinating one-of-a kind diversity acts as a backdrop in the circular economy scenario, and all the actors find themselves in different places, and thus performing different roles. The key understanding of why a transition from linear to circular economy differs between the European Union’s member…

The Plastic Pathway towards Circularity

It is a little over a year since the EU introduced a landmark directive limiting the production of single-use plastics.

On the Deep Implications of Nudging in Circular Economy

The link between firms and circular economy is evident. If we think of circular economy as a set of propositions to integrate economic activities and environmental sustainability, we can easily understand how close one is to the other. There are several mechanisms linking environmental responsibility to economic outcomes. In this article, we focus on how our own behavior is key for this integration. Particularly, we examine the concept of nudging…

Why institutions matter so much for the circular economy transition?

Veltha supports and promotes the generation of circular economic development strategies that fully empower the local institutions, based on the recognition of regions (or provinces) as the most efficient authority capable of detecting and sustaining the needs of the local stakeholders through the application of bottom-up approaches that are specifically tailored to the local characteristics. In fact, the role of institutions in the local development processes has been studied in…

The Policy Lab for Circular Regions gets to a new dimension! Join now.

Is it Circular Economy the latest powerful buzzword?

Certainly, the circular economy has gained momentum and, as noted by Josè Luìs Cardoso, the concept has come to stay.

Does Europe really need to transition toward a circular economy?

Undoubtedly, the massive burden that the linear economic model poses on the ecosystem has been a fundamental factor in the development of the circular economy proposition, urged by a steady and significant increase of the demand for raw materials and exacerbated by the growing evidence of a changing climate. Natural resources represent the core of the global economy,  standing at the base of the current production patterns: these are in…

European Green Deal? Nice Plan! But who will implement it?

The tackle of pressing climate and environmental-related challenges is the most important test that our society needs to jointly address. For this purpose, the European Commission launched a lavish plan to prioritize sustainable economic growth, decoupled from the linear use of resources, through the promotion of systemic changes across economic sectors and within the society. The ambition of the European Green Deal is related to the connection of different fields…
