Luxembourg is keen to showcase circularity in action by exhibiting the progress achieved over the past two years at the Luxembourg Circular Economy Hotspot 2017.
This major three-day event will offer a forum for debate, exchange, face-to-face meetings and networking for 200 delegates from Europe and beyond.
The circular economy is an important step forward for all of us. Therefore we are seeking greater participation from our economic and political allies from both the Greater Region and the entire Benelux union. Let’s make progress together.
From 20 to 22 June 2017, participants will hear from high-level government and industry leaders about how to turn challenges into opportunities by embracing the circular economy as a key lever for sustainable growth and profitability. The largest part of the programme, however, will be devoted to project and company visits that will give participants insight into Luxembourg’s circular innovations and demonstrate how enterprises and other stakeholders can be an engine for change.
AN ECONOMIC PRIORITY
Luxembourg was among the first countries to realise that businesses – and indeed the economy as a whole – must become more environmentally sustainable. As natural resources become ever scarcer and more expensive, there is no doubt that the prevailing traditional economic model, based on a take – make – waste approach, is close to outliving its legitimacy.
Considered as an economic priority by the Government and underpinned by the findings of a nationwide study in early 2015, the country’s political and industry leaders have since stepped up their efforts to accelerate the transition from a linear to a circular economy, while at the same time turning Luxembourg into a living lab for experiential learning and knowledge sharing. Also, pilot initiatives have rapidly emerged at city and industrial park level, fuelled by government support and dedicated programmes, such as Fit 4 Circularity.
