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.
