An ambitious EU circular economy package
European Commission, An ambitious EU circular economy package, Factsheet
The EU Circular Economy Package has the “end goal of less waste production”.
This less waste production should be implemented taking into consideration “the entire circle” [of product life]. Therefore, the entire value chain must be involved in such a project, consumers included.
The Package therefore addresses both to “economic operators and society”, not only because both businesses and citizens can help in realizing the aforementioned goal, but also because they both will benefit from circularity (in fact, on the one hand, there will be new business and job opportunities; on the other, there will be more competitiveness, and products and services more affordable, convenient, efficient, durable, and sustainable).
