VUB signs Green Deal for Circular Purchases

VUB signs Green Deal for Circular Purchases

Prof. dr. Cathy Macharis signs the Green Deal Circular Purchases for Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). This is an initiative by the Flemish Government: “By 2050, Flanders wants to have a circular economy in which raw materials circuits are closed. For this we need other products, services and earnings models. Circular purchases are an important lever for that change. With their purchasing policies, governments, companies and other organizations can boost circular products and services”.

Aside from her research and academic work, prof. dr. Cathy Macharis has always promoted sustainable initiatives at VUB. Previously, she organised a lecture series, together with CrossTalks, on sustainable development.

MOBI is also a proud co-signer of the Green Deal for Shared Mobility.
