Between 2000 and 2016, resource efficiency in the EU grew by 41%. Whilst this is encouraging, the growing economic and environmental case for improving resource efficiency means action must accelerate. This is particularly the case in a context where increasing the competitiveness of the European economy, supporting the creation of good quality jobs and delivering on important global environmental commitments are all top of the agenda.

With the Circular Economy Package and its Action Plan nearing completion and with businesses needing long-term policy certainty to invest in new business models, this event will mark the launch of the Aldersgate Group’s latest briefing on resource efficiency. This briefing will feature a range of new business case studies on the circular economy, together with recommendations on policy priorities beyond the end of the Circular Economy Package.

With a keynote speech by Jyrki Katainen, EU Commission Vice President and a multi-sector business panel, this discussion will explore the progress made to date by businesses and EU institutions on resource efficiency and debate priority areas of action for the years to come.
