About this Event

Circular Economy and Biodiversity: how companies can boost biodiversity based on the circular economy principles.

One of the main principles of the circular economy is the regeneration of natural capital, including reserving and restoring biodiversity. The aim is to achieve sustainable business models in different sectors that instead of impacting negatively can increase vegetal and animal biodiversity while generating economic and social value.

The Government of Navarre wants to present different examples of regional companies that want to create economic value while restoring natural and social capital, and promote and exchange of good practices, that could add value. Those companies and actions want to collaborate with similar experiences in other European regions, willing to spread and scale their business cases and contact with networks of European businesses for biodiversity regeneration.
