New this year, the regional research and innovation meetings and the World Forum for a Responsible Economy are being coordinated in order to offer economic players a complete range of tools and testimonials to help them achieve sustainable change. The two programs have been designed to complement each other and address the entire spectrum of business.

Fino Mornasco, Italy, June 23rd, 2017: D-Sat, the first nanosatellite with the ability to remove itself from orbit in a direct and controlled way at the end of its mission through a dedicated device, has been launched on Friday June 23rd, 2017, from the Satish Dhawan Space Centre in India atop a PSLV rocket.
The satellite, built and operated by D-Orbit LLC, is the first in-orbit demonstration of D-Orbit Decommissioning Device (D3), a smart and independent propulsive system designed to decommission a satellite with a direct and controlled propulsive maneuver at the end of a space mission even if the main satellite has become unresponsive. The same technology can be scaled up to decommission spacecraft of up to 5 tons.
“This mission is a milestone in how we deal with the problem of space debris” said Luca Rossettini, D-Orbit founder and CEO. “We believe that everything that goes up should come down as soon as it served its purpose, and we want to provide a practical and affordable solution to enable this vision. Our dream is to have a D3 installed in every new satellite by 2025.”
The development of D-Sat is funded through a EU Horizon 2020 grant called “SME instrument”, under grant agreement No 711193 for D3 Project. The scientific part of the mission is partially funded by a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter accessible from the following link: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/433487168/d-sat
D-Orbit LLC is an Italian space system company specialized in products and services to streamline commissioning and decommissioning of satellites and constellations, reducing system complexity and cost of operation, and increasing lifetime, reliability, and revenues.

In a circular economy, growth comes from ‘within’, by increasing the value derived from existing economic structures, products and materials. This major report quantifies the benefits for Europe – in terms of growth, household income, and environmental outcomes – of adopting a circular development path compared with our current linear one.
Incorporating in-depth analysis of three of Europe’s largest basic needs, mobility, food and the built environment, the report provides a vision of how the circular economy could look, and highlights wide-ranging implications for government and business leaders.
This report was sponsored by SUN (Stiftungsfonds für Umweltökonomie und Nachhaltigkeit) in collaboration with the Ellen MacArthur Foundation and the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment.
