The European Commission, EC, published the new Circular Economy Communication, called “Closing the loop – An EU action plan for the Circular Economy”
The transition to a more circular economy is an essential contribution to the EU’s efforts to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive economy.
Such transition is the opportunity to transform the economy and generate new and sustainable competitive advantages for Europe.
The circular economy will boost the EU’s competitiveness by protecting businesses against scarcity of resources and volatile prices, helping to create new business opportunities and innovative, more efficient ways of producing and consuming.
It will create local jobs at all skills levels and opportunities for social integration and cohesion, and at the same time, it will save energy and help avoid the irreversible damages caused by using up resources at a rate that exceeds the Earth’s capacity to renew them in terms of climate and biodiversity, air, soil and water pollution.
EDA works with other related professionals of this field in order to take advantage of this Circular Economy Communication offers.
Precisely, the Construction Products Europe, CPE, has elaborated an interesting graphic about it.
