The Flemish Construction Confederation has launched an online sharing platform for construction companies in order to align more closely with the principles of a circular economy.

Construction

Werflink, launched in collaboration with construction company BESIX, Circular Flanders and FLOOW2, means construction firms within Belgium, large and small, can share equipment, materials and freight space between them, which should provide financial, environmental and social benefits.
