During the Nudge Explores Circular Cities Tour 2015 we send a team on a trip through Europe to find out how Circle Economy works in practice (read all about it on the Circular Cities Tour page). We found many great initiatives that used waste as a resource and proving it is a great alternative for the take-make-waste model the current economy is based on. This new way of doing business asks for new ways of financing. ING Commercial Banking has researched the challenges of moving from a linear to a circular economy for the financial sector. In the report ‘Rethinking banking in a circular economy’ they outline the most important principles and factors that are the foundation of the circle economy and the impact on financing activities.
ING is a global financial institution with a strong European base, offering banking services.
