Circular Economy

The concept of Circular Economy is a necessary approach to manage future scarcity of raw materials and to promote the efficient use of resources.

The European Commission adopted in December 2015 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.
