Global leadership within circular economy

View of Kalundborg Industry with two peole in the forground

For 50 years, Kalundborg Symbiosis has been a circular model for the whole world.
In Kalundborg Symbiosis, the city’s largest industrial companies collaborate across sectors and share their surpluses of energy, water, and materials with each other, so that one company’s surplus product can provide value to another. Public and private companies are physically connected to each other in the Symbiosis and together create profits - both the kind we measure on the bottom line, but also what comes from better utilization of resources. Production companies globally can learn a great deal from the circular model created in a small corner of Denmark.

In addition, we will discuss new circular initiatives that are constantly developing the partnership, and you will have a unique chance to meet and visit some of the partners – and not least, to network and celebrate the achievements.

Our Managing Director, Svein Berg, will speak on "How can the Nordic countries play a central role in the design of green business models and use this position as a future growth driver?" at the 14:40 session.
