Produce, use, throw away – that's how a linear economic system works that uses up raw materials quickly and pays a toll on climate change. Circular economy stands in contrast to this. In circular economy, manufacturing companies reuse the materials and products they use many times – and for as long as possible. Their life cycle is therefore longer.
Circular economy conserves resources, which not only increases the performance and competitiveness of companies, but also makes them sustainable and thus fit for the future. This also applies to the Metropole Ruhr as one of the leading regions in the field of the environmental economy.
The Metropole Ruhr knows how change works. The sky over the Ruhr has long been blue again. New innovative companies are settling on former mining sites. Clean water flows again in the renaturalized bed of the Emscher river. The Ruhr region shows how the challenges of the past can be turned into opportunities for the future. From gray to green: Greentech.Ruhr bundles the know-how of the environmental industry in the region.
