CircLean Label

CircLean will develop a specific European industrial symbiosis label to certify businesses that are compliant with the CircLean approach for industrial symbiosis transactions.

A label to enhance visibility, credibility, and transparency around the results reported from industrial symbiosis activities in the EU

To date, there is a lack of neutral third-party aknowledgement and visibility of industrial symbiosis transaction in the EU. This affects the credibility and transparency of the impacts reported from industrial symbiosis activities across Europe.   

That is why CircLean is working on a European industrial symbiosis label. It will be awarded in recognition of the fact that all transactions are reported accurately and truthfully, based on the CircLean reporting methodology. To do so, the CircLean network will work on a voluntary industry-led protocol outlining the rules and guidelines on which data should be provided and in what way.

Companies that comply with the CircLean process will be eligible for the certification.  It will not only help businesses to participate in communicating their sustainability efforts, but will also signal that they are trustworthy partners to other operators.
