What is it all about?

The Green Circular Transition program aims a providing business from across industries with building competitive advantages based on increased resources efficiency and circular economy approaches. The program is in place from 2019-2022 and is implemented by a group of 17 organizations and with the expertise of 60+ circular consultants.

For this reason, the program includes a track designed to enable Danish SMEs to tap into international best practices.
