Developing solutions together
EPEA (Environmental Protection Encouragement Agency) was founded by Michael Braungart, then the head of Greenpeace’s Chemistry department, in order to not only point out environmental problems but also to motivate companies to act and develop solutions together. Complex challenges, such as chemicals in wastewater which are harmful to health or the littering of the Earth with non-biodegradable products, demand an interdisciplinary, holistic approach. And the right partners, who we can bring to the table together.
„We can transform the doomsday discussion of recent years into positive innovations. “
Since then, we have been supporting important players and companies from the business world, the public sector and the scientific community to implement circular processes and innovative product developments. In the process, we apply knowledge from chemistry, biology, environmental science and economy and the property sector in order to develop or optimise products of all types regarding their material health and circularity, using the Cradle to Cradle® design framework, which we helped to develop. In addition, we develop concepts for closing materials cycles in production processes, buildings and cities.
