What is Taranto Circolare?
Taranto Circolare is a project that aims to generate a positive impact by initiating the circular transformation of Taranto. It acts as a springboard for initiatives, processes and services, exploiting an in-depth analysis and knowledge of the territory. The objective is to measure and understand the city’s potential to promote change.
Measuring and understanding the reference context
The first step involves analyzing the material and energy flows of the city and the business models of economic actors in Taranto to assess the current state of circularity in the area and identify strengths and weaknesses.
Measuring and understanding the reference context are the first steps for creating robust and impactful projects.
Promoting local and global cooperation through a platform
As a showcase, the platform highlights companies, organizations and initiatives that view sustainability as an opportunity. The portal offers tools for organizations to analyze material, energy, and emission flows; facilitates connections among stakeholders to encourage new collaborations, and offers an overview of available calls for proposals to support the development of sustainable projects.
Fostering new projects to increase the circularity level of the territory
Tondo, together with its various partners, promotes the emergence of new circular projects, supporting the development of innovative and sustainable ideas. This includes exploring opportunities and hypotheses derived from the initial analysis of macro-flows to encourage the inclusion of an ever-growing number of local organizations and activities on the platform.
