{pt_PT=Circular Economy: promoting business and environmental sustainability on local, community-based project} {} EVALUATED

{pt=Only in English, en=The Circular Economy is a concept that can be pursued to move towards an economy in which what is regarded as waste today can enter the economic cycle again as a resource. The concept of a Circular Economy acknowledges the constraints of limited natural resources and offers an approach to cope with them to move towards a more economically, socially and environmentally sustainable world. The aim of this thesis is promoting business and environmental sustainability on local, incentivating a Circular Economy system using Industrial Symbiosis as a tool. Using Industrial Symbiosis as a tool means to analyse regulation at the European and national level, understand the barriers and drivers, especially in the waste management field. Important contribution has been done by the literature, where Critical Factors, suitable Business Models, Coordination Policy Level, Industrial Symbiosis type of approach, help to frame, while case studies and stakeholders help to square the circle. }
