A potential consumption time bomb will lead to inevitable resource constraints. Around 3 billion people are expected to join the ranks of the middle class by 2025.
The world is witnessing this revolution as we are progressively moving from linear economy (take – make – dispose) towards circular economy and continuous cycles. The forecast is considerable: by adopting a more restorative approach, the estimate of materials cost savings is over US$ 1 trillion per annum by 2025 (McKinsey report, Davos 2014).
The concept of Circular Economy will generate growth from resource constraints, engaging in sustainable restorative living for humans, in a non toxic environments with creation of positive impacts according to Cradle to Cradle® principles.
Circular Economy’s implementation is driven by the Cradle-to-Cradle® principles, addressing both biological and technical cycles.
Gather, Create and Share Circular Economy with positive impact implementation tools in a referential physical center.
The Implementation Centre for Circular Economy (ICCE) is an ASBL (nonprofit organization) aiming at embracing and spreading change globally. The steering committee is led by Lateral Thinking Factory and SECO.
ICCE offers four levels for supporting its activities: through Partnerships, Memberships, Academic and Donation.
ICCE is looking at engaging both private and public stakeholders to support the initiative and to provide our partners with best-in-class approaches, tools & methods, and networks to successfully drive the Circular Economy implementation in the Brussels Region and beyond.
