Circular Economy beyond Energy: Recycling and Reducing Waste

When addressing the challenge of climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, one quickly wonders about production and consumption habits. We consume much more and much faster than what the earth can produce. As reported by the UN, by 2050, we would need three planets to provide enough resources to satisfy our current lifestyles. It is clear: a change is needed.

This is why the European Commission has given Circular Economy a central role in the EU Green Deal, and has recently published a new Circular Economy Action Plan for a cleaner and more competitive Europe.

Circular material use can minimise waste and resource extraction, improve resource efficiency, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and contribute to conserving biodiversity. Yet, most circular economy initiatives in Europe are still at an early stage and would benefit from more investments in upscaling promising innovations and in monitoring progress towards circularity.

Join FEDARENE‘s upcoming Webinar Series on Circular Economy and learn how to become a frontrunner in Europe’s transition towards a more sustainable and competitive system! These seminars will touch upon the many different aspects of circular economy, from biogas production to public procurement, waste management and recycling. You will get inspired by local and regional initiatives and hear from renowned experts and EU representatives. The transition to a new, circular and fair society has started, will you be a part of it?

This Webinar is part of FEDARENE’s Circular Economy Webinar Series:
