EU Commission adopted a new Circular Economy Action Plan

End of March the EU Commission published a package of EU Green Deal proposals for a climate-neutral and competitive economy. The proposals include strategies to make sustainable products the norm in the EU and the introduction of a Digital Product Passport, to empower consumers for the green transition and to boost circular business models while protecting the environment. Further, the package includes a non-binding document to improve the sustainability and circularity of Textiles and the revision of the Construction Product Regulation.

The relevant documents can be found on the website under EU Documents.

Honorary doctorate for Prof. Helmut Rechberger

We would like to take this opportunity to cordially congratulate our CEC4Europe Vice-Chairman Professor Helmut Rechberger.

The University of Antwerp has conferred him an honorary degree for his research on anthropogenic material cycles and sustainable waste management. Professor Helmut Rechberger examines how we humans can take nature as an example for good recycling. Through his analysis of the anthropogenic material balance, he contributes to making the handling of raw materials and waste more sustainable.

CEP Icon

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).
