The EU must continue its efforts to reduce consumption of materials and generation of waste to achieve a more circular economy.

This point was made by the European Commission’s revised Circular Economy monitoring framework which was published on 15 May.

The revised framework helps to track progress in the transition to a circular economy in the EU and considers how the circular economy can contribute to climate neutrality, resilience and global sustainability. It includes new indicators, covering material footprint, resource productivity and waste prevention targets and takes into account the consumption footprint, greenhouse gas emissions from production activities, material imports dependency and EU self-sufficiency for critical raw materials.
