The Market-driven Circular & Bioeconomy

Content Description

The private sector needs to embrace the circular and bioeconomy to make it reality.
Five projects, each with their own aims and KPI's but with one consequential goal in common – reduction, or even elimination of emissions and thereby contribute to implementation of the EU Green Deal objective of sustainable economic European growth.
