Closing the Loop – Circular Economy: boosting business, reducing waste

May 28, 2015

Pgm2014 2020: Yes


As part of the process to develop a more ambitious circular economy package, the European Commission is organising a Circular Economy Conference in Brussels on 25 June 2015.

The circular economy package will lay out the opportunities for green growth and build on previous EU resource efficiency and innovation initiatives. The conference will support a public consultation that will collect the views of stakeholders on the main policy options and measures explored for this initiative.

Participation in this conference is open to all stakeholders wishing to contribute to shaping European economic policy making.

The conference will consist of an opening plenary (keynote and panel discussion), a series of break-out sessions addressing specific aspects of the circular economy, and a closing panel with institutional representatives.

It will be opened by Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans and closed by Vice-President Jyrki Katainen. It will include contributions from the Commissioner for the Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs, Elżbieta Bieńkowska and Commissioner for the Environment, Maritime Affairs and Fisheries, Karmenu Vella.

Attendance is free, but registration is required.
