SUSTAINABLE ECONOMY AND ECO-LABELLING

CONTEMPORARY SOCIETY IS HEADING TOWARDS A SCENARIO WHERE INTERNATIONAL POLICIES ARE PAYING MORE ATTENTION TO ENVIRONMENTAL ASPECTS

At CIRCE, we are helping both companies and public authorities to include these aspects in their development strategies, on the basis that it will not only encourage sustainable development but will also entail significant competitive and financial advantages.

This gives us the ability to reduce the environmental footprint left by a given product or service and to provide guidance for organizations wishing to adapt to environmental policies and standards or include them in their processes.

One of the formulas we use to make this happen soundly and coherently consists in developing ecolabels for either products or industrial processes. This way, producers and consumers can see the impact of the goods they are producing or buying and make the most environmentally friendly choice.

TECHNOLOGICAL SERVICES

  • Analysing environmental factors and costs of products, processes and services

Our Life-Cycle Cost Analysis studies reveal the environmental impact and costs that will arise throughout the value chain in order to develop strategies to reduce them.

TECHNOLOGICAL CAPABILITIES

  • Environmental labels and statements

To foster a more environmentally friendly behaviour in all kinds of products and processes, we have introduced a series of tools to ensure compliance with ISO 14025 – Environmental Product Declarations, ISO 14020:2002, ISO 14024:2018 Environmental Labels and Declarations.

  • Sustainable economy strategies

We assist public authorities in developing strategies, plans and programmes that encourage the circular economy and sustainable development, especially in the fields of waste revaluation and use of unexploited resources.
