    Économie circulaire et événementiel : une mutation nécessaire pour le secteur

    Économie circulaire et événementiel : une mutation nécessaire pour le secteur

    Focus

    Le secteur de l’événementiel est plus que jamais concerné par les enjeux de durabilité et de préservation des ressources. Conscients de la nécessité de concilier l’organisation d’événements et l’économie circulaire, les acteurs du secteur doivent se mobiliser davantage afin de mettre en œuvre les leviers d’action existants.

    Dans le cadre de la nouvelle loi française, de nombreuses mesures sont pertinentes:

    • Des objectifs de réduction des emballages plastiques et la fin du plastique jetable en 2040
    • La lutte contre le gaspillage (alimentaire)
    • Les mesures favorisant le réemploi et la réutilisation
    • La gestion et la valorisation des déchets
    • Les dispositions relatives aux filières à responsabilité élargie des producteurs (REP) engageant une réflexion sur la filière événementielle
