Tuesday marked the official launch of Luxembourg's circular economy portal, jointly developed by the Ministry of Energy and Spatial Planning, the Ministry of the Economy, the Ministry of Environment, Climate and Sustainable Development and the Ministry of Finance.

The new portal is a government platform for sharing information relating to the “Kreeslafwirtschaft Lëtzebuerg” strategy, which was presented in February, and for communicating the practical implementation to public and private stakeholders. The portal will be continuously extended over the next few weeks. It provides a single point of contact for this cross-cutting theme and will eventually be available in four languages: Luxembourgish, French, German and English, in order to ensure its national and international visibility.

In a circular economy, the production and exchange of goods and services and the creation of socio-economic value are based on circular management of stocks and flows of materials, taking into account the limits and regenerative capacities of our planet. The strategy for a circular economy in Luxembourg provides a common vision for the implementation of a circular economy and practical guidelines for individuals, businesses, municipalities and state administrations.

Along with the launch of the portal, the ministries involved are also planning to launch an awareness campaign on the theme of the circular economy via social networks.
