Upcoming Event: OMINA Circular Economy Seminar with Femke Groothuis
Circular Economy imitates the behavior of nature, where everything that is created or manufactured, once damaged or useless, serves as raw material for a new product. Produce, use and throw? No, reduce, reuse and recycle.
How does the circular economy work?
What are the benefits for small, medium and large companies in adopting circular initiatives?
How can the circular economy offer opportunities for economic growth, a new social contract and greater wellbeing?
