ACR+ member Fundación para la Economiá Circular is organising a new edition of its Meeting Point on 22 June 2017 in Madrid, under the title “Management of material resource, products and waste: objectives 2030”.

The event will focus on the current hot topics regarding circular economy such as the current situation of the Circular Economy Package of the European Union. Then, five representatives of cities and regions with good performances will share their best practices, in particular regarding innovation, fiscal and economic incentives and waste reduction. A second session will be dedicated to recycling and hazardous waste in anticipation to the upcoming Directive on packaging and packaging waste. Another theme which will be dealt with is energy recovery, specifically in a Spanish and Portuguese context. The last topic of the conference will be about the fight against littering, to debate about the best ways to prevent the flow of material into the seas and how to cover the environmental and economic costs of this fight.
