EU and the Circular Economy

Goods news from the European Comission:

“The European Commission adopted an ambitious Circular Economy Package, which includes revised legislative proposals on waste to stimulate Europe’s transition towards a circular economy which will boost global competitiveness, foster sustainable economic growth and generate new jobs.

The Circular Economy Package consists of an EU Action Plan for the Circular Economy that establishes a concrete and ambitious programme of action, with measures covering the whole cycle: from production and consumption to waste management and the market for secondary raw materials. The annex to the action plan sets out the timeline when the actions will be completed.

The proposed actions will contribute to “closing the loop” of product lifecycles through greater recycling and re-use, and bring benefits for both the environment and the economy.”

  1. The Circular Economy title will likely suggest to many the EU’s desired outcome is a no harm, no-change, no-growth economy. A simple change to Revitalize Economy, Rebirth Economy, New Life, or New Leverage Economy could generate enthusiasm for the new EU measures to be implemented.

      Yes, I understand huge political structures come to change at slower pace but it is always encouraging to see that they acknowledge the existance other ways to grow. I am just discoverning the Circular Economy and I am trying to understand how it can works within a gouvernamental institution (cityhall, state organization, etc).
