Les experts :

“Circular Economy is so much more than waste management. It is about making the best possible use of our limited resources in the conception, production and use of our products.” Dessa Langevoort, BASF

By 2050 there will be nine billion people in the world. We need to find ways to prosper without overusing natural resources, hurting others or changing the climate. This requires new ways of thinking about the way we are designing and construction our buildings. Steligence®, ArcelorMittal’s new approach to construction, is a solution to reach this goal. Prof. Dr. Olivier Vassart, Arcelor Mittal

Only a circular economy that puts people and planet first can deliver the bold vision of the Sustainable Development Goals. Tamsin Rose, Moderator

In order to become really successful, the Circular Economy needs a review of existing regulations. E.g. REACh, transport of waste regulation and environmental legislation are not ‘designed’ with Circular Economy in mind. This has to be improved. Dr. Jan Tytgat, Umicore

“The circular economy will have increasingly profound effects on the way we produce and consume, and on our relationship with nature and natural resources. As first movers usually benefit from substantial competitive advantages by setting the next set of habits and rules for those who follow, our role as policy-makers is to ensure a faster and fair transition, in which all stakeholders are able to contribute, cooperate, and share the benefits that circular Europe will create.” Emmanuelle Maire, EU Commission

Realizing a circular economy is a matter for everyone. That is why we are working on a broad partnership of organizations that also include engagement for action. Industrial companies and SMEs are indispensable in this. Brigitte Mouligenau, Circular Flanders
