The Desafío Circular Foundation, whose purpose is to support organizations to accelerate the transition to a circular and sustainable development model, with the collaboration of Enel, will launch this March the #CircularAwards 2023 to recognize and reward the ventures and innovations that are setting the standard for the circular economy in Chile.

In its first version, large companies, SMEs, and non-profit organizations are invited to participate with their innovations and circular initiatives in 5 key categories to promote circularity and sustainable development in the country:

  • #Challenge WATER
  • #Challenge EMISSIONS
  • #Challenge VALORIZATION
  • #Challenge ENERGY
  • #Challenge SOCIAL


A jury of national and international experts will award this recognition to organizations whose initiatives: 1) integrate circular economy principles and strategies into products and services, 2) have implemented circularity policies and strategies, and 3) are contributing to the development of a sustainable ecosystem through partnerships and collaborations. This general concept aims to create a more technical conversation about CE's economic, social, and environmental benefits. We invite participating organizations to report impact indicators in their application.

“It is important to recognize circular economy innovation initiatives publicly and those worthy of imitation. We want to show that implementing a circular economy in organizations can improve economic indicators while contributing to our country's decarbonization and sustainable development, an objective in which we can and must all participate.”

– Loreto Herrera, Executive Director of the Desafío Circular Foundation

Get ready to take part in this award that recognizes the best and inspires others to challenge themselves for a more circular and sustainable world.
