According to the Circular Energy Foundation, circular economy is an economic concept linked to sustainability. This kind of economy is based on the principle of “closing the life cycle” of products, waste, services, and materials.

EDUCA Business and Professional Association disseminates partners, business owners, and associations that are in tune with its responsible practices, generate truly sustainable development, and promote creating quality employment and improving the quality of life for the inhabitants of Valladolid.
EDUCA Association is so committed to the circular economy that, after presenting the project “Collaborative Circular Economy Platform” (originally named in Spanish “Plataforma Colaborativa en economía circular”), it has begun working toward the “Circular Company” Certificate (Sello “Empresa Circular”).

The main goal of this label or certificate is to value companies that develop circular economy projects either fully or partially.
Other purposes are: to make companies using this certification stand out from the crowd, to request that public administrations consider this label for public tenders and bids, to highlight the importance of the circular economy in the business world, and to raise awareness about the importance of “circularizing” the economy and contributing to creating a more sustainable society.
