Encouraged by the EU Commission’s Circular Economy Package (CEP)

CEC4Europe endorses the importance of closing loops and boosting resource efficiency, but at the same time, pleads for a more scientifically and fact based approach: A systematic analysis of our future raw material needs and all relevant secondary raw material sources is needed so we can achieve the common goals of the circular economy – environmental protection, securing of raw materials, economic benefit, and growth – in an effective and efficient manner, based on scientific evidence. Taking far-reaching economic and environmental policy decisions with an insufficient data basis would be speculative and not in line with the CEP objectives. CEC4Europe is an association under Austrian law, based in Vienna, AT, and registered in the EU Transparency register under No 628480917959-24 (24/06/2015).
