BUSINESS PLATFORM FOR FOSTERING GREEN AND DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION IN THE SOUTHEASTERN EUROPE
It has now become obvious that to foster a durable and resilient economic recovery after the COVID-19 crisis, much more than a return to ‘business as usual’ is required. To foster a green and digital growth of Southeastern European countries’ economies, the weTHINK. launched a weBuildBackSmart Initiative. Using an innovative strategy-making approach, including all relevant stakeholders and considering every single opinion-maker participating, weTHINK. strives at creating a strong network of so called smart THINKERS – businesses and other stakeholders that can significantly contribute to building smart communities in their local environments and in the region.
Rethinking waste-management and recycling through circular business models
A conference with a focus on financing opportunities and investment possibilities for companies in the field of waste-management and plastics.
Enhancing public-private partnerships as circular waste-management business models
For a circular economy it is essential to recycle materials from waste in order 'to close the loop'. The recovery of energy from waste also plays an important role.
Goals and Overview
Within the EU environmental acquis, waste-management is one of the most demanding sectors in terms of the resources – both human and financial – needed for the adaptation of the relevant EU legislation and implementation of this new circular agenda.
ver the past 50 years, the role and importance of plastics in our economy has consistently grown. In the EU, the potential for recycling plastic waste remains largely unexploited. Reuse and recycling of end-of-use plastics remains very low, particularly in comparison with other materials such as paper, glass or metals.
The energy sector in Southeast Europe faces a unique dual transition, a challenge without any precedent in the field of energy: transition from a centralised state-controlled system to open and competitive markets, and transition towards decarbonisation.
