Circular Economy

The circular economy in Päijät-Häme is based on the region’s strong knowledge of environmental technology and cleantech. Since the 1990s the region has been a forerunner of environmental technology. The circular economy is expected to create growth and business in Päijät-Häme in the future, strengthening the region’s logistically important location and increasing its profile as a region of sustainable development.  

The circular economy in Päijät-Häme means energy and resource efficiency and new bio- and circular-economy solutions. The circular economy will create new business opportunities, products and services. These new services and circular economy education at different levels will develop skills and offer companies new business opportunities and knowledge in the transition to a sustainable economy.

Roadmap towards Circular Economy

Päijät-Häme’s circular economy roadmap defines targets, brings together actors and projects, and guides the region’s progress towards the circular economy in a systematic way. Local authorities, developers, representatives of universities and businesses hold the Circular Economy Group meeting several times a year. This group exchanges information on ongoing and planned circular economy activities and projects.
