CESME

Circular Economy for SMEs

The CESME project partnership is composed of 10 partners from 6 countries (Denmark, Finland, Wales, Italy, Greece and Bulgaria).

The CESME project addresses SME inclusion in the circular economy, by interregional meetings identifying good practices aiming to examine how best regional and local authorities and business development agencies can improve relevant policy instruments and design support packages to assist SMEs to enter the circular economy. Through the creation of a return on investment analysis - Circular Economy Toolkit quantifying the economic and social benefits of circular value chains as well as a White Book guiding SMEs step by step into circular economy, the CESME partnership intends to introduce new circular initiatives targeted for SMEs. These initiatives will be implemented and tested for feedback and adaptation in order to be replicable tools across EU as well as monitored against their expected impact. Finally, this is expected to lead to the improved effectiveness of the policy instruments addressed by the project partners.

Consortis was involved in the implementation of the Action Plan for the Region of Central Macedonia, the implementation of the White Book, the LSG meetings, the interregional partner event that was held in Finland and the application of the toolkit for RCM.
