In 2020, the European Commission announced the framework for its second Circular Economy Action Plan. As a result, an ambitious framework for EU Member States to work within is developing, whilst neighbouring non-EU countries have also followed suit and introduced a number of their own measures. However, despite this recent legislative activity, it remains a question as to whether European economies are any closer to becoming circular and how we should specifically measure circularity.
Our last live! webinar – Are we getting closer to a circular economy in Europe?- dig into greater depth to answer these key questions:
- Is a truly circular economy ever achievable? On our current trajectory, when could this be achieved in Europe?
- What are the indicators and benchmarks used in Europe to measure progress towards a circular economy?
- What are the policies and strategies that local municipalities should focus on implementing to help accelerate progress towards a circular economy? How can they best support national policy-creation and action towards this goal?
