Position paper of the Institut de l’économie circulaire on the European Commission’s Circular Economy Package
Since the European Commission’s communication on an “efficient European resource use” in January 2011, the EU contributed significantly to spread the concept of of circular economy. The Circular Economy Package makes the European Commission enter into a phase of political realisation which will orientate durably the political and economic path of the Member states.
After having expressed its disappointment following the withdrawal of the previous Package presented by the Barroso’s Commission in 2014, the Institut de l’économie circulaire followed with attention the new proposition of Juncker’s Commission presented on the December 2nd 2015. Through its European working group, aiming to reinforce the interactions between the political and economic leaders at national and European level, the Institut de l’économie circulaire initiated a multi-stakeholders debate that led to this position paper.
