Coastal tourism in the Baltic Sea in particular is largely dependent on natural resources, which are one of the most attractive tourism assets of the region. As tourism development grows in the Baltic Sea region, the demand for energy, waste treatment and use of resources has been on the rise, calling for innovative solutions to mitigate the sector’s environmental impact and decrease pressure on water, energy, and food resources. Against this backdrop, the “Circular economy tools to support innovation in green and blue tourism small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)” or CIRTOINNO project was launched. The project is co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund within the interregional South Baltic Programme 2014- 2020, with the Pomerania Development Agency of Poland, as the Lead Partner.
