Going Green – CARE INNOVATION 2023 will provide a platform for presenting up-to-date progress on the circular economy and the development of resource-efficient electr(on)ic products and services.
This international symposium on 8-11 May 2023 will compare the three major economic regions - Europe, America and Asia - in the presence of high-level speakers from global electr(on)ic and recycling companies, research institutes and environmental & consumer organisations.
Leading industrialists, research directors, environmental experts and scientists will analyse the state of play regarding:
- producer responsibility
- environmentally-friendly electr(on)ic & automotive product development
- resource scarcity and criticality
- clean production, green marketing, logistics and end-of-life strategies.
Through a wide range of presentations, the contribution of the electr(on)ic & automotive industry to sustainable development in general will be discussed, and the necessary products, technologies and services will be identified.
The International Circular Economy Forum (FIEC) is the largest annual circular economy event in Peru, and aims to inspire the public and private sectors, academia and civil society to work towards a place-based, just transition towards the circular economy in Peru. This year's event will take place on 13, 14 and 15 September 2022 and will address a wide array of trending topics, such as how collaborative networks contribute to circular ecosystems.

ITENE is a research centre specialised in packaging. It specialises in developing circular solutions along the supply chain, from raw materials development to final waste management. To meet the sustainability requirements, it develops technological solutions focused on new materials and recycling technologies as well as responding to requirements in terms of safety, design and functionality in packaging.
Besides offering services to the industry ITENE attracts a community of over 4 000 companies and 10 000 professionals, is a member of the leading organisations in its field, and plays an active role in a wide range of sectoral fora and initiatives. Formed in 1994 as a private association with non-profit purposes, it is located in Valencia (Spain).
There are major benefits to be gained from residual flows that are used to a limited extent in food production. By scaling up the use of residual streams for human consumption, we can take a big step towards a circular sustainable food system. But because these residual flows require pioneering work in cooperation with various organisations, an impactful chain transition is not realised.
To accelerate the transition of upcycling of residual streams towards food, co-creation and rock-solid cooperation are needed. The Upcycling Community started by Foodvalley NL is a safe environment where organisations can develop their ideas together and gain inspiration from each other. With the right support and a mix of cross-sector organisations, we make a circular impact.
Re-think - Circular Economy Forum | Taranto 2022 sets out a vision of macro-trends, possible evolutionary paths and key projects concerning the circular economy at both Italian and international level.

CIMPA, an EU-funded H2020 project, aims to develop a recycling chain for post-industrial and post-consumer multilayer films from food and agricultural applications. This complex approach combines innovative compositional sorting, mechanical and physical recycling and an advanced decontamination process.
The consortium CIRCULAR FoodPack is working on solutions to enable the circular use of plastic packaging, focusing on the most sensitive product category: food. The project aims to develop recyclable packaging with at least 50% post-consumer recyclates incorporated behind a functional barrier.
If you are a representative of a retail SME based in a Member State of the European Union, you are invited to complete the survey "Twin transition for Retail SMEs", that is part of an independent study commissioned by the European Commission. The idea is to collect best case stories from SMEs engaged in digitalization to increase their sustainability.
The Basque Circular Summit is one of the largest events on eco-design and circular economy in Europe. It aims to provide information about major circular challenges, to analyse the opportunities for the Basque economy and to highlight the work carried out by local companies through public-private partnerships with a view to reaching the objectives of the Basque Circular Economy and Bioeconomy Plan 2024.
The Digital Product Passport (DPP) promotes sustainable production. The passport lists all materials and components used in a product or a building and the information on their location. Providing this information could increase the product circularity and contribute to reaching the net-zero objective.
What are the challenges ahead? What are the initiatives in place at the European level? Join us online on 8 July from 09:00 to 10:30 CEST to learn more from frontrunner stakeholders that have already conceptualised digital product passports and are operating them on the EU market.
