Circular Economy

Circular Economy

Our cluster in circular economy and sustainability, RENERGI circular economy hub, arranges on Tuesday 19 March an event about sustainability and the future. The main goal with this event is to learn more about what we and our companies must do in the future when we talk about circular economy: What is going on in the EU, in Europe, in the Nordic countries and in Finland as well as when and what we must do in order to be an attractive business partner in the future. How can we handle the circular economy in our processes and in marketing?
