No saving the climate without a turnaround in resources.

A functional circular economy is one of the keys to solving the three existential crises that we humans have caused: climate change, pollution, and the extinction of species.

The circular economy and the associated sustainable use of materials and resources is a decisive approach to counteract climate change and the challenges with raw materials.

At the same time the circular economy is the basis for a prosperous, resilient and sustainable economy.
