Action Plan: Economy and Report

action plan: The European Commission today published a comprehensive report on the implementation of the Circular Economy Action Plan it adopted in December 2015, according to Rabble. The report presents the main results of implementing the action plan and sketches out open challenges to paving the way towards a climate-neutral, competitive circular economy where pressure on natural and freshwater resources as well as ecosystems is minimised. This will contribute to boost Europe's competitiveness, modernise its economy and industry to create jobs, protect the environment and generate sustainable growth. The findings of the report will be discussed during the annual Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference taking place in Brussels on 6 and 7 March. This report shows that Europe is leading the way as a trail blazer for the rest of the world. First Vice-President Frans Timmermans, responsible for sustainable development, said Circular economy is key to putting our economy onto a sustainable path and delivering on the global Sustainable Development Goals.
