QA-CER assures the quality system related to the recycling process and use of recycled materials. Both the recycled content and the quality of the end product are addressed in order to support the principle of sustainability.
QA-CER scheme reported as Pilot Project Ellen MacArthur Foundation
Ellen MacArthur Foundation was founded in 2010 and aims to accelerate transition to a circular economy. This foundation has become a worldwide recognized knowledge center for this theme. To this end, the organization works with philanthropic and knowledge partners from the private and public sectors.
Each year, the organization selects valuable projects that it thinks they can contribute to the circular economy. The 6 criteria that such a project must meet are:
- Passes in the circular character of the new economy
- Contribute to cooperation and involve extra parties in the circular economy
- Provide useful information that may lead to improvements in the use of recycled materials in products
- Be sufficiently mature
- Have sufficient focus
BQA is pleased that the Ellen MacArthur Foundation has recovered these valuable elements in QA-CER and expects this selection to be positive on the scheme itself and to you who endorse this scheme.
