The way forward to Circular Economy is mainly based on a new industrial approach based on resource efficiency and sustainable raw materials use and supply. Starting from the design of products and production processes the closure of loops shall be aimed at, along the entire products value chain by means of innovative technologies, methodologies and new business models. The key issue is sustainable use and supply of raw materials. The big businesses can play a significant role in the transition towards circular economy as best practice drivers within their production chain and extendable to further sectors as success example. Within this framework, some concrete examples for sustainable industries are present at national level with particular reference to Eco-design implementation and industrial symbiosis.

Targeted Audience: Large, medium and small enterprises, Industrial associations, scientific community, public administration
