Waste and Resources Action Programme WRAP
The Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) envisions a world in which all resources can be used sustainably. Established as a not-for-profit company in 2000, WRAP is a registered charity with a mission to promote and accelerate the move to a resource efficient economy and to protect natural resources. It does this through:
- Product sustainability - reinvention of the design, creation and selling of products.
- Behavioural change - reinvention of how products are consumed.
- Waste and resource management - redefining what is possible through preventing and minimising waste and promoting the reuse of materials and recycling.
They take action where their work can have the greatest impact and benefit the greatest number of people, whether that is from an economic, social or environmental standpoint. Their activities focus on four resource incentive sectors:
Strong relationships with government, decisions makers and business leaders allow WRAP to influence policy, people and the supply chain. They work closely with the EU, the UN and other stakeholders and funders.

 About CIRCuIT
The Circular Economy wiki is supported by the Circular Construction in Regenerative Cities (CIRCuIT) project, which is funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme. CIRCuIT is a collaborative project involving 31 ambitious partners across the entire built environment chain in Copenhagen, Hamburg, Helsinki Region and Greater London. Through a series of demonstrations, case studies, events and dissemination activities, the project will showcase how circular construction practices can be scaled and replicated across Europe to enable sustainable building in cities and the transition to a circular economy on a wider scale.
