By design, these practices benefit businesses, society and the environment by reintegrating waste back into the value chain. This new model encompasses principles based on the 7 R’s, designed to bring about sustainable action. Our mission is to unite central principles, skills and strategies under a single, universally recognized certification. The certificate has been established to bridge the gap between skills and facilitate the definition and identification of circular economy expertise across industries.
