Let's talk circular

Let's talk circular! Op 19 juni 2019 bod het Havenhuis in de haven van Antwerpen een bijzonder decor voor de interactieve conferentie van AHK debelux over kringloopeconomie en duurzaamheid in ondernemingen. Tijdens dit evenement presenteren leidende industriebedrijven uit de sectoren chemie, staal, grondstof en recyclage hun projecten en strategieën. Hun gemeenschappelijke doel is om de gaten te sluiten in de kringloop met al zijn operationele uitdagingen en groeimogelijkheden. AHK debelux focust niet alleen in haar jubileumsjaar op duurzaamheid. Zo ondersteunen wij ondernemingen uit onze drie landen met advies over milieuregelgeving.


“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

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
