Making Luxembourg a knowledge hub for Circular Economy

"Our agreement for science & marketing support from EPEA will allow Luxembourg to develop and implement innovations like those from EPEA that are already driving billions of Euros worth of innovative products and services," he explained. "As an example, the recent study for the Luxembourg Ministry of the Economy was done by EPEA as is well-accepted."

Prof. Michael Braungart, head of EPEA added; "In Jeannot Schroeder Luxembourg has the most experienced and successful +ImpaKT enterpreneur in Luxembourg. His experience with the EU-supported C2CBizz project established him as a knowledgeable Cradle to Cradle  practicioner, and C2C is acknowledged as a basis for the circular economy." 

The activities of the new company include:
  • Supporting companies, NGOs and associations with implementing CE initiatives, following on the well-received Ministry of the Economy study performed by EPEA
  • Circularity quick scans and scoping
