Sustainability and the circular economy
Small and medium-sized enterprises increasingly have to deal with changing customer demands, fluctuating markets and increasing sustainability pressure. The implementation of sustainability and the circular economy offers great opportunities, but also presents challenges, especially for smaller companies. saaris focuses on different aspects and teaches you not only the necessary basics of sustainability and the essentials of the circular economy, but also how you can prepare your company for these challenges. With various projects, co-financed by the state, the federal government and the EU, saaris is an advisor to Saarland companies along the entire value chain of this transformation.
