To boldly and more widely promote circular concepts, we combine the potential and resources of various stakeholder groups - state administration, local governments, businesses, science - under one name. Together, we work to support innovative, comprehensive, practical and scalable solutions in all sectors of the economy. We focus on various industries, including construction, food, packaging, electronics, plastics, transport, energy and textiles; we undertake activities dedicated to cities and regions. We care for cross-sectoral and supra-regional cooperation, as well as for cooperation in administration and business, thus ensuring greater efficiency of undertaken activities.
