The European Resource Efficiency Knowledge Centre (EREK) helps European companies, especially SMEs, save resources and engage in circular economy and industrial symbiosis. EREK provides tools, information and business opportunities demonstrating new and better ways to be resource efficient and benefit from circular economy business models, which turn waste into assets. Concrete activities include an online platform, news, trends and information on support programmes, a database, and capacity-building and training workshops. To help companies test their performance in resource efficiency, they have developed a Self-Assessment Tool (SAT). Companies received a tailored report grouping together all gathered information and recommendations on becoming more resource-efficient for 11 sectors: office, timber and woodworking, waste collection services, food processing, manufacturing and machinery and equipment, hotels and restaurants, metal and plastics processing, wholesale and retail, textile and clothing, chemicals and process, constructions.
