Resource consumption in Switzerland is high. The country is heavily dependent on imports, and trades primarily with countries that are consumer more natural resources than can be regenerated in their own territory. Transition to a circular economy is a necessity and Switzerland has an opportunity to show leadership.

We aim to reduce the intensity of material and energy production by:

  • demonstrating the potential for circular economy in progressive towns and cantons
  • sharing circular economy success stories and showing the opportunities for new business models
  • stimulating innovation in design, service and business models
  • building the market for circular economy products through public/business procurement
