FEAD welcomes the work of the European institutions on the Circular Economy Package. The transition from a linear to a more circular economy is vital if the European Union is to develop a sustainable, low carbon, resource efficient and competitive economy in the future.
The private waste and resources industry plays a key role in making progress towards a circular economy by providing secondary raw materials and energy for Europe’s industries and consumers.
We need strong leadership from EU policy makers to provide the right legal framework and direction of travel, on the basis of which the private sector can make the necessary investments for a more circular economy. This will in turn create many more jobs in Europe while making our economy more resilient and resource efficient. On the left hand-side, you can find the best practice examples on circular economy as provided by our member associations across Europe.
