What we do

The Eurochile Business Foundation stands out for being a pioneer in the implementation of the Circular Economy in various projects, becoming an opportunity and tool for the development of the country, one of the notable examples of this initiative, is its participation in the construction of the Roadmap in conjunction with the Ministry of Environment. In this sense, the Foundation has highly trained professionals and experts in the area of Sustainability and Circular Economy, whose main objective is to promote the adoption of sustainable practices and encourage the transition towards a circular economic model in companies.

Through the implementation of concrete projects and actions, Eurochile seeks to encourage various initiatives to promote circular tourism, waste reduction, the implementation of circular agriculture, sustainable construction, the use of natural resources and the activation of sustainable business models. These actions contribute to economic growth and care for the environment.

For the past 30 years, the Eurochile Foundation has been a benchmark in promoting collaboration and knowledge exchange between companies, institutions and other relevant actors in the field of sustainability and circular economy, both nationally and internationally. Its work has been fundamental to boost Chilean-European cooperation and promote promising initiatives in these fields.

In this sense, the area of Sustainability and Circular Economy is actively involved in several projects, such as:

  • AL-INVEST Verde: Programme co-financed by the European Union that promotes sustainability and circular economy in MSMEs and Business Organisations in the fruit and construction sector.
  • Innovation Fund for Competitiveness (FIC) in the Coquimbo region: Programme implemented by the Eurochile Business Foundation, financed by the Regional Government of Coquimbo, which will contribute to the reactivation of tourism in the region.
  • National Fund for Regional Development (FNDR) in Osorno: Promoting the improvement of the recycling and waste management value chain, focusing its efforts on citizens, waste managers and SMEs.

These are just a few examples of the many projects in which the Sustainability and Circular Economy area of the Eurochile Business Foundation is working, in order to contribute to sustainable economic and social development in Chile.
