circular economy

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

Since EPEA GmbH was founded in 1987 in Hamburg by Prof. Michael Braungart, it has developed into an international innovation partner for environmentally friendly products, processes, buildings and urban districts. Our goal is to establish the Cradle to Cradle® design principles for a circular economy in all industry sectors. This allows us to support companies to move onto the right path and become part of the change: from the molecular to the modular level, from chemicals to cities.
