Circular Economy

Using resources for as long as possible allows you to reduce emissions by up to 70%, in addition to significantly reducing waste.

In recent years, the Circular Economy has gained increasing prominence on international, European and national agendas.


This one  strategic concept is based on the principles of reduction, reuse, recovery and recycling of materials and energy, thus being a key element to promote the association between economic growth and reducing the consumption of resources.

Upcycling involves taking an item (waste or scraps of materials) that would otherwise be waste and repurposing it, offering an entirely different function while having higher quality or more value than the original item.

There are several examples of upcycling in increasingly different areas and sectors, such as fashion, decoration or even at an industrial level, with the reuse of scraps serving as a basis for constructing new products.  

There are differences between recycling and reusing. Recycling creates lower quality products by breaking down these products, usually paper, plastic, metal and glass, making a new product. Meanwhile, upcycling allows the reuse of these materials, giving them a further use different from the original.
