New Circular Economy Business Model for More Sustainable Urban Construction

Bocconi University

Within Bocconi University, GREEN, the Centre for Research in Geography, Resources, Environment, Energy and Networks, was established as a result of the merger between CERTeT and IEFE. GREEN aims to conduct and promote research projects at the intersection of the spatial of socio-economic phenomena and of climate change, transportation, environmental policy and energy markets.

The main areas of research are:

  • Economic geography and local governance
  • Spatial analysis of socio-economic phenomena (e.g. economic activities, local development, housing) and local public policy
  • Environment and climate change
  • Environmental analysis and policy at global, local and firm level
  • Networks and public utilities
  • Economic analysis of specific sectors such as transportation, energy markets, telecoms, water and sanitation, solid waste management, geopolitics of international networks

The research approach is highly multidisciplinary and oriented towards addressing policy-relevant issues at local and global scale.
