The European Commission released its blueprint for a circular economy in Europe
The European Commission adopted the Communication "Towards a circular economy: a zero waste programme for Europe and annex to establish a common and coherent EU framework to promote the circular economy. Turning Europe into a more circular economy means:
- boosting recycling and preventing the loss of valuable materials;
- creating jobs and economic growth;
- showing how new business models, eco-design and industrial symbiosis can move us towards zero-waste;
- reducing greenhouse emissions and environmental impacts.
