What is EREK?
The European Green Deal has the ambition to make EU’s economy sustainable. The European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre (EREK for short) is a tool to achieve such an ambition. It is here to help European companies, especially SMEs, save resources (water, energy, waste) and engage in circular economy and industrial symbiosis. EREK provides tools, information and business opportunities demonstrating new and better ways to be resource efficient and benefit from circular economy business models which turn waste into assets.
EREK also supports national, regional and local organisations across Europe that work with SMEs to improve their environmental performance, helping them to become more resource efficient.
Who can be part of EREK?
Business support organisations, industry clusters, chambers of commerce or industrial associations, local and regional authorities, who work on the topic of resource efficiency.
