From Linear to Circular: Charting the Course with CEMforSMEs

In an era where sustainability has moved from a niche concern to a global imperative, the transition from a linear to a circular economy is not just beneficial; it's essential. This transformation represents a systemic shift, reimagining our production and consumption patterns to design out waste, keep products and materials in use, and regenerate natural systems. At the heart of this transition lies the role of Circular Economy Managers (CEMs), particularly within Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) active in the agri-food sector. The CEMforSMEs project, funded by the Erasmus+ program, is pioneering this shift by developing a comprehensive framework for the professional development of SMEs managers, emphasizing the circular economy.

Circular Economy Manager for SMEs: Advancing the Transition from Linear to Circular Economy

The agro-food industry alone produces about 34% of total emissions, as per the EDGAR-FOOD database published in 2021 by the FAO. Pollution from this sector is still too high, and in 2022, Earth Overshoot Day arrived on 28 July - a full four months before the end of the year. It is clear that we need to reduce the pressure on the environment and optimize the resources we have. The circular economy is the new sustainable economic paradigm that can help us achieve these goals.
