The ReWine project is an educational program that aims to promote good practices of Circular Economy already implemented by some companies in the wine sector and whose contents will be presented over the following months.
The main goal of this project is to contribute to an active citizenship in this field, focused on the awareness that Circular Economy is an important pathway to achieve Sustainable Development.
This initiative is promoted by ADVID/CoLAB VINES&WINES, co-financed by the Environmental Fund and ENEA2020, and is based on the three principles of circular economy – Eliminate waste and pollution, Keep products and materials in use and Regenerate natural systems.
