International agreements such as the Agenda 2030 or the Paris Agreement on Climate Change are placing increasing demands on companies with regard to eco-efficient business. Similar stimuli are provided by the EU with the circular economy package or the plastic strategy. This involves the efficient use of resources and the recycling and avoidance of waste, but also intelligent product design and the return of recycled materials to the economic cycle. In this context, the term recycling economy or circular economy has established itself.
- which framework conditions are required for a functioning circular economy;
- how Austrian know-how can contribute to the development of sustainable systems in emerging and developing countries;
how companies can help to shape the local market environment and thereby utilize new economic opportunities.
