60.30 million euros of the proceeds of the sustainability bond issued in March 2021 were allocated to the Pollution Prevention and Control category. That equals 4.82% of the total nominal amount of the sustainability bond.
Which projects are eligible?
Every year, Flanders Innovation & Entrepreneurship supports circular economic projects. Those circular projects reduce the use of primary resources (such as fossil raw materials, water and space) to meet our needs (such as food, housing, transport, comfort, communication and health).
In order to stimulate social and circular entrepreneurship on a local level, a call was launched by various parties (including Circular Flanders) to unite in circular hubs. Those hubs focus on networks where stakeholders meet and assess collaboration. The collaborations should result in:
- new circular services or assignments for recognised social economic companies
- new circular entrepreneurship with social impact
