Promoting reliable data, a shared vision, collaboration and innovation to maximise re-use of primary materials and products.
Using resources more efficiently, avoiding the production of waste and encouraging re-utilisation, re-use and recycling are the central tenets of the circular economy.
The King Baudouin Foundation is committed to the transition towards a circular economy through the development of a shared vision, support for innovation and coalitions between those in the sector, and by making relevant data available.
- analysis of employment and the potential for employment in the circular economy (barometer, indicators, research etc.)
- support for innovative projects that strengthen employment, skills and competencies in sectors with high density of labour (construction, up-cycling, repair etc.)
- support for transition in circular neighbourhoods, rural regions and towns
- encouraging understanding of innovation and success factors in promoting a better use of agro-food waste.
