BEYOND THE 2019 ELECTIONS: WHAT NEXT FOR EUROPE’S CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND PLASTICS AGENDA?

31st January 2019

PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT WILL BE HELD IN BRUSSELS, BELGIUM.

Under the current Commission, the circular economy and plastics agenda has grown in importance. The Circular Economy Package was launched in December 2015 and the first Europe-wide plastics strategy was published in 2018. On the ground, Europe’s resource productivity has increased by around 40% between 2001 and 2017. However, a lot of the measures announced by the Commission will need to be either implemented or developed in more detail over the course of the next Commission and European Parliament. The next five years will therefore be essential to accelerate progress on the circular economy and plastics agenda.  

With a keynote speech from Jyrki Katainen, European Commission Vice-President and contributions from business and think tank leaders, this event will debate the progress made over the last five years on the circular economy and plastics agenda, how to ensure that momentum continues and what should be key priorities for European policy makers after the European elections and change of Commission.
