The circular economy is a key priority of the European Green Deal, which reflects the European Commission's commitment to address the climate and environment crisis. In March 2020, the European Commission published a new Circular Economy Action Plan as part of the Green Deal, including actions on product policies, eco-design, empowering consumers and the use of digital technologies. The circular economy is also expected to play a role in the EU recovery process as Member States will need to prepare national recovery and resilience plans.
Drawing on the results of the CIRC4Life project, which implements circular economy business models in value chains, the webinar on "Incentivising new circular economy business models" on 14 October 2020 from 11 a.m. to 12.30 p.m. (CET) will present examples of circular business models and discuss barriers, enablers and the new Circular Economy Action Plan's potential role in accelerating towards a circular transition.
(This webinar is the first in a series of two. The second will take place on 20 October.)
