The Institut de l'économie circulaire has presented 10 initiatives implemented in four French regions (Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Bretagne, Normandie and Nouvelle-Aquitaine) as part of a national programme to generate synergies between businesses (Programme National de Synergies Inter-Entreprises - PNSI).
This ambitious scheme was implemented with support from the French environment and energy management agency (ADEME) and the Environment ministry. The PNSI, launched in July 2015, has led to the formation of a network of more than 500 companies that have participated in a range of workshops to identify opportunities for synergies between businesses in the various territories. Operational support has also been provided to businesses, to help them seize the most promising opportunities.
