Upon the publication of the new Circular Economy Action Plan by the European Commission, circular economy has become a central topic in climate change discussion. Circular material use can minimise waste and resource extraction, improve resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to conserving biodiversity. Yet, most circular economy initiatives in Europe are still at an early stage and would benefit from more investments in upscaling promising innovations and in monitoring progress towards circularity.
The last session of this webinar series focused on waste management and recycling through a series of best practices across Europe and across sectors (construction, food, textile, plastic, electricity, etc.). What opportunities are there for regional action plans in Europe towards a circular economy? What sectors should be targeted for the transition? How can we bring all involving regional stakeholders to cooperate to ensure the development of these action plans? How important is knowledge-sharing among players? What kind of innovations exist for more sustainable infrastructures?
In case you missed it, FEDARENE‘s Webinar Series on Circular Economy can help you learn how to become a frontrunner in Europe’s transition towards a more sustainable and competitive system! These seminars touched upon the many different aspects of circular economy, from biogas production to public procurement, waste management and recycling. The series included insights about local and regional initiatives from renowned experts and EU representatives.
