If Europe is serious about becoming the first climate neutral continent by 2050, circular economy needs to be at the forefront of the European Green Deal. For this, Europe must implement an ecodesign approach for sectors with the highest environmental impact, stressed ECOS, the environmental NGO expert in ecodesign and product policy.
More than fifty representatives of Greek civil society, public authorities and academia gathered in Athens, Greece, on 10 December, to discuss the role of NGOs in the standardisation system, as well as the role of standards in policy and how they can support the circular economy.
On 11 December, the European Commission will release its Green Deal, and according to high level officials, circular economy is set to be the number one priority for Europe. This is a move ECOS fully supports, as detailed in our priority checklist published today.
