IMPACT AREA

CIRCULAR ECONOMY, ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT

We are on a mission to promote and support the people and projects that are addressing the challenges of the climate emergency, and to put this critical issue at the top of the region’s agenda. We believe that South West Wales must move away from our linear economy (make, use, dispose), closing the loop to conserve resources and ensure long term sustainability.  A circular economy is restorative and regenerative by design. We’re also working on collaborative projects related to renewable energy, green infrastructure, agroecology and zero waste.

CIRCULAR ECONOMY, ENERGY & ENVIRONMENT

 

4theRegion is on a mission to create a greener, cleaner region with a sustainable, circular economy, in response to the climate emergency and ecological collapse.  Our members in the renewable energy, environmental, agroecology and sustainability sectors are crucial to this mission.  As well as networking opportunities, important roundtable discussions, and the ability to get their voices heard at a regional level, we support our members in the Circular Economy by promoting their work and connecting them with businesses and organisations across the region.  The Circular Economy is one of our six impact areas and we work tirelessly to ensure the conservation of resources and regeneration of the environment are top of the regional agenda.
