“As main funding partner of this initiative, we find it important that Ecopreneur.eu and MVO Nederland advocate policy measures at the EU level that are both forward looking and realistic. Forward looking, because aiming for cross sectoral systems change. Realistic, because based on the experience of green SMEs as well as pioneering large companies.”

“Interface supports Ecopreneur.eu because it helps us to promote the advantages of doing circular business, for society as a whole as well as for companies. To achieve this, we advocate a tax shift from labour to resources, and creating transparency throughout the value chain.”

“Ecopreneur.eu is important for our company to help us at the EU level to create new markets for the secondary plastics we use for our packaging. This requires ambitious implementation of the Plastics Strategy as well as other policies, especially to improve the quality of recycled materials and incentivise the reuse and recycling of post-consumer plastics.“

“The main added value of Ecopreneur.eu is that it is the only cross-sectoral business organization advocating systemic policy measures to accelerate and mainstream the circular economy. Circular procurement and waste policies are of major importance to create a business environment favoring circular choices.”

“As the member of Ecopreneur leading the Ecopreneur project on Circular Economy advocacy, our main objective is to create a shift toward a new economy in the Netherlands by 2025. Being a member of Ecopreneur.eu is crucial for us to help to change the “rules of the game” at the EU level: policies such as the Circular Economy Package, the Plastics Strategy and the VAT Directive have a major impact on company decisions in all member states.”

The Ecopreneur Circular Economy Advocacy Group is a sounding board of pioneering companies from the membership of Ecopreneur.eu. Click here for our 3-pager providing further details.
