Who is Reloop?

Reloop is a broad platform of like-minded interests that share a common vision for a circular economy

The founding members of the organization bring together industry, government, and non-governmental organizations to form a network for advances in policy that create enabling system conditions for circularity across the European economy.

With members coming from different sectors across Europe, the platform aims to work as a catalyst in order to generate economic and environmental opportunities for all stakeholders in the value chain. This includes producers, distributors, recyclers, academia, NGOs, trade unions, green regions, or cities.

Reloop is born to connect stakeholders, allow for information-sharing to inform those stakeholders, and influence decision makers to adopt policy that works towards the implementation of policies and systems that promote a circular economy.

Vision & Mission

Reloop’s vision is a world where resources remain resources and where they create jobs in a circular economy. A world where we prioritize waste prevention, advocate reuse, and promote closed-loop recycling, while incineration, landfill, and littering are minimized and ultimately eliminated.

To achieve the organization’s vision, Reloop promotes the overriding benefits of a circular economy. Through a combination of prevention and reuse, as well as high quality and quantity recycling, we work to strengthen the viability of this economic model by assigning value to resources through deposits and related economic incentives.
