Circular Economy – A Game Changer for the Wood Building Industry

Circular economy (CE) is an industrial system that replaces the traditional linear business model with a circular one. For companies this means introducing new business models based on repair, reuse, refurbishing, remanufacturing and recycling.

Circular Economy - a Game Changer for the Wood Building Industry is a project that aims to support SMEs within the wood building ecosystem in overcoming common barriers for adopting a circular economy business. This is done by:

  • Helping companies to increase their knowledge on new business models
  • Raising the employee know-how on new technical solutions
  • Creating a better understanding of customers need for product and service development 
  • Innitiating new networks and business ecosystems
