Best practices, guidance and community to make the circular economy happen in Berlin.

Cities are major centres of human population, economic capital, natural resource usage, and waste generation. Here lies Berlin’s opportunity to become a circular city – in which resources are locally circulated, social bonds are strengthened and long-term prosperity is redefined.

We are a not-for-profit network of professionals and organizations, working together to accelerate Berlin’s transition to a circular city.

The 2019 circular economy agenda for Berlin (ongoing)

Have a look at the ongoing agenda, co-created at the Impact Hub on the Berlin on the 9th of April.

Our work

As a mix of strategists, designers, researchers and practitioners, we partner with academia, business and municipalities to bring the local community together, conduct in-depth research studies and launch our own circular projects.


Berlin has a vibrant community of organisations in the circular economy space. We have put together a curated selection, ranging from circular fashion to zero-waste cooking, and from innovative material developers to new construction processes.
