“CIRCULAR 3.0”, the benchmark conference on the topic of circular economy, took place on Tuesday, April 25th, at Apollo 111 – Palatul Universul, building B (23 – 25 Actor Ion Brezoianu Str., Sector 1, Bucharest).
“CIRCULAR 3.0” was the first event of the 2017 series of GREEN REPORT CONFERENCES, organized in partnership with the Ministry of the Environment, and the third on the topic of circular economy, after CIRCULAR 2.0. which took place in April 2016.
CIRCULAR 3.0 brought together the business, legislative and administrative components, allowing the representatives of recycling, collection and sanitation industries, those of central and local public authorities, waste generators, and the press to sit down at the same table.
Some the most prominent figures responsible for environmental matters in Romania who attended the “CIRCULAR 3.0” event were: the Minister of the Environment – Gratiela Gavrilescu; General Mayor of Bucharest – Gabriela Firea; Founder and President of the Cluster for Innovation and Technology, ATL Brasov – Ionut Tata; President of the Environment Fund Administration – Cornel Brezuica; Senior Counselor of the General Directorate for Waste, Contaminated Sites and Hazardous Substances – Ministry of the Environment – Mihaela Frasineanu; Vice President of the National Agency for Environmental Protection – Doina Catrinoiu; Director-General of the General Directorate for Waste, Contaminated Sites and Hazardous Substances within the Ministry of the Environment – Cosmin Teodoru; President of the National Agency for Environmental Protection – Viorel Toma; President of the ECO Romania Association – Doru Iorga; Director of the General Directorate for Analysis, Programming and Evaluation of the Ministry of European Funds: Competitiveness Operational Program – Mihaela Toader; President of the Environ Association – Andrei Orban, etc.
Circular 3.0 seeks to identify ways to improve waste management, as well as the possibilities of achieving savings on the state budget through waste generation prevention, eco-design and product reuse. Real and effective collaboration among the central authorities, the recycling, collection, and sanitation industries, and waste generators was another important topic in “CIRCULAR 3.0”, as well as the presentation of key elements for the successful implementation of the principles of circular economy.
Furthermore, the Circular Economy legislative package is less known in Romania. “CIRCULAR 3.0” will be the framework for debating the challenges brought about by its implementation. Apart from presenting the European standpoints, “CIRCULAR 3.0” will enable pragmatic discussions on the European directives on packaging waste and the waste management system in Romania.
Circular economy is the challenge of the 21st century: an economy based on decreasing energy and raw material consumption, where resulting waste has a precise destination straight from the design phase, by integrating such waste into the cyclical reuse spiral.
Green Report conferences enter the landscape of business conferences with a new, creative, and results-oriented approach. For this purpose, the Green Report team changes the „standard” and brings several different approaches: instead of having a monotonous presidium, the scenography changes with each panel; instead of dull PowerPoint presentations, 1: 1 interviews; instead of counting the hours until the end of the event, dynamics and active involvement of the audience.
