Our journey with the ECONYL® Regeneration system started many years ago exactly in the city that in these days has been declared European Green Capital, so we are very happy to congratulate Ljubljana for this great achievement!
This milestone was the result of the great efforts done to raise environmental awareness amongst its citizens, for its implementation of urban green measures, its sustainability strategy and the incredible transportation network.
Ljubljana prevailed over Essen (Germany), Nijmegen (The Netherlands), Oslo (Norway) and Umea (Sweden). Janez Potocnik, Commissioner of Environment, said: “All of the finalists of this Award provide us with valuable real-life examples of how respect for the environment, excellent quality of life and economic growth can all be successfully combined”.
Having our ECONYL® regeneration plant there, we lived the big changes of the latest years and are very proud to be able to work in such a city that shares our same concerns for the environment and focuses on finding everyday better solutions with collaboration, research and development, technology and the principles of circular economy.
Here is a Medium article about a recent collaboration we established between our Slovenian plant and our neighbors in Ljubljana.
