ACR+ Position Paper on Circular Economy


ACR+ has just published a new position paper on the European Commission’s Circular Economy Package 2.0. In the paper, ACR+ outlines its support for the efforts made to spread awareness amongst all actors of the value chain of the need to abandon the current linear economic model. Producers, consumers, retailers, decision-makers and all other stakeholders should aim to accelerate the transition to circular economy, towards a more resource-efficient Europe and the development of new businesses and life styles.

The importance of local and regional authorities in this shift is also mentioned, including the measures that could be undertaken in order to allow authorities to play their crucial role in boosting a new economic model that promotes less resource wastage.

Regarding the Waste Package, some of the several recommendations from ACR+ include strengthening prevention and better addressing the organic fraction. In addition, ACR+ strongly supports the need to have minimum EPR legal requirements.
