Norrum participated in the preparation of the Digipolis Policy Brief on measuring the industrial circular economy in eco-industrial parks. The Policy Brief has been prepared in cooperation with the Circular Economy Centre in Kemi, Finland, and the Sitra Innovation Fund in Helsinki, Finland and it is the first in a series of publications introducing the monitoring mechanisms of eco-industrial parks. The publication introduces recommendations on developing the monitoring mechanisms for eco-industrial parks that aim to meet the global sustainable challenge by promoting circular economy.
