National Strategy for the Circular Economy in Romania

The Romanian Strategy for the Circular Economy (NSCE) is a roadmap for accelerating Romania's transition from a linear to a circular economic model. The implementation of the Action Plan (to be adopted in September 2023) will provide a framework for this transition. The strategy gives an overview of the fourteen economic sectors, and identifies the following as having the greatest circular potential:

  • agriculture and forestry
  • automotive sector
  • construction
  • consumer goods (food and beverages)
  • packaging (glass, paper, plastic materials etc.)
  • textiles
  • electrical and electronic equipment.

The overall objective of the NSCE is closely linked to the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations' 2030 Agenda.
