Be Circular

Brussels Regional Programme for the Circular Economy

Brief description of services

The Brussels Regional Programme for the Circular Economy (PREC-GPCE), known as Be Circular, is a programme involving multiple stakeholders from 91 organisations. It is designed around 111 measures that respond to the opportunities provided by a circular economy, including combining economic and environmental goals, supporting local production, and optimising land use.

Why is the product or service circular?

The transversal measures of the GPCE apply to all economic operators, with the aim of developing a favourable regulatory framework, elaborating economic support measures, supporting innovation, setting up sustainable and innovative public procurement, and creating or steering new training courses. The sector-specific measures are directed at the construction, raw materials and waste, logistics, retail and food industries.

Which circular strategies are applied?

  • Reduce total amount of materials
  • Reduce amount of virgin inputs
  • Extend the useful life
  • Maximise the reusability of a product or component
  • Maximise the reusability or recyclability of materials
