Three-year strategic partnership with EPA

Posted on 16th January 2019

The EPA and the Rediscovery Centre, the National Centre for the Circular Economy, have launched a three strategic partnership. The partnership will support the development of a circular economy in Ireland.

Dr. Sarah Miller, Chief Executive Officer of the Rediscovery Centre, said,

“Through the strategic partnership with the EPA, the Rediscovery Centre will continue to build on its existing successful initiatives but also co-design creative, innovative programmes with the EPA to create and embed opportunities for the circular economy in Ireland.”

Laura Burke, Director General of the Environmental Protection Agency, said,

“The EPA welcomes this strategic partnership and looks forward to working with The Rediscovery Centre. This partnership aligns with our ambition to foster a circular and greener economy in Ireland. Demonstrating what the circular economy looks like in terms of, for example, redesigned and recycled fashion and furniture, is an important part of raising awareness amongst the public and through education. This strategic partnership will build on the EPA’s and the Centre’s proven track record in innovation, advocacy and behaviour change for resource use efficiency and the circular economy.”
