EU supports Aldersgate Group project on Circular Economy

5th August 2013

The European Commission is supporting a new Aldersgate Group (AG) project on the circular economy to demonstrate how businesses and their supply chains can implement Resource Efficient Business Models. This follows the publication of the AG's report, Resilience in the Round, that was published last year.

The co-funding increases the AG's capacity to drive change in four key markets: electrical and electronic products, clothing, furniture and construction products (that are collectively worth more than 350 billion Euros per year across the EU). The project will be in partnership with WRAP, ESKTN, The University of Northampton and Rijkswaterstaat (RWS) and has a time scale of 3.5 years.
