The Foundation for Circular Economy (FCE) was established in 2013 as a private and independent NGO to promote the circular economy in Hungary and become part of the international and European network of organizations with similar objectives. The primary mission of the FCE was to create a platform and a knowledge center where business, academia, local and regional authorities as well as NGOs can collaborate in collecting, sharing, spreading and raising awareness of the knowledge, experience and practice related to circular economy. In the past two years the FCE has been increasingly focusing its activity on the business application and entrepreneurial issues of the circular economy. This covers eg. resource efficiency, eco-design, extended producer responsibility, circular business models, etc. Last year we launched our business platform, called Circular Club, which gathers primarily SMEs interested in circular economy.
