Sustainable economy in Brussels: from the social to the circular

How can we respond to the needs of current and future generations? Sustainable development is a response to this key question of our times; it calls on us to innovate and rethink our economic model for the good of our societies, the planet and our economy.

The idea of sustainable development emerged in the second half of the 19th century, when the industrial revolution was in full swing. Little by little, Western societies have begun to notice the significant impact of human activity on the environment and the social balance. It has taken several environmental and social crises for this realisation to come to the fore: now it is time for a new economic system.

Today, this fact persists and there is a need for concrete solutions.

The sustainability services at hub.brussels are based on the three pillars of sustainable development: economy, society and the environment. They are aimed at companies in the environmental sector, social enterprises and companies working in thecircular and social economies.
