Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference 2017: Οne year after adoption, working together for the future
To showcase the key deliverables achieved so far and to debate future deliverables with stakeholders, the Commission and the European Economic and Social Committee are organising a Circular Economy Stakeholder Conference on the 9th and 10th of March 2017 in Brussels. The two-day conference will culminate with the formal launch of the European Circular Economy Stakeholder Platform whose purpose and implementation will be discussed during the second day.
The implementation of multiple measures as set in the Action Plan is on track, and actions announced for this year are to bring even more tangible benefits to Europe and its citizens.
The transition towards a more circular economy brings great opportunities for Europe and its citizens. It’s an important part of our efforts to modernise and transform the European economy, shifting it towards a more sustainable direction. There’s a strong business case behind it enabling companies to make substantial economic gains and become more competitive. It delivers important energy savings and environmental benefits. It creates local jobs and opportunities for social integration. It is closely interlinked with key EU priorities on jobs and growth, investments, the social agenda and industrial innovation.
The conference will be web-streamed.
