Circular Insight & Transition

In the future, companies will have to invest more in sustainability and reducing their carbon footprint in their own operations if they want to be on the market in 2030 and later.

The transition to a circular economy is a journey of many steps. It is not possible to implement the circular economy mindset efficiently without being aware of what circular economy really means. And if the mindset is not implemented, information and awareness have no purpose. The journey to change needs to be executed in the long term by shifting to operating models that are in accordance with circular economy, which means that goods and services are offered in new ways.

One of the goals of the project is to continue implementing the Ostrobothnia circular economy roadmap and action plan developed by the CERM project between 2019 and 2021. Ostrobothnia has good prerequisites for developing into a sustainable society in which business is based on the principles and resource efficiency of low-carbon circular economy.

Green recovery is essential for business operations after the coronavirus pandemic, and climate challenges are ever present despite the corona crisis. That is why both of these should be considered side by side so that we can create a resilient Ostrobothnia.

The lessons and conclusions of the CERM project and the current state analysis of Ostrobothnia's circular economy will be taken into account in the project.
