Environment Programme presents projects dedicated to Circular Economy

At the Portugal Smart Cities Summit 2020, there was a presentation of projects from the Environment Programme financed by the EEA Grants, dedicated to the theme: Increased application of the Circular Economy principles in the Construction sector

The event took place within the scope of the Portugal Smart Cities Summit, at the Lisbon Congress Center.

Four projects were presented regarding the development and implementation of construction projects demonstrating economic and environmental advantages, which promote the performance and environmental profile of materials, components and products developed in Portugal, as well as the development of standards for the construction sector that promote the circularity of materials and processes.

A pitch session also took place, where 5 project promoters from “Call # 2 - Promotion of Circular Economy in the Construction Sector” presented their projects in a three-minute window, as well as their own perspective of Circular Economy principles framed within the projects.
