The Government of Catalonia is organising in its Brussels delegation a seminar on “The role of eco-design in the circular economy” on 16 June 2015, in collaboration with the Barcelona Centre de Disseny and endorsed by the Bureau of European Design Association, the European Environment and Sustainable Development Advisory Councils and ACR+.

Circular economy will be essential to improve the resource efficiency in Europe, one of the key aspects of the Europe 2020. A strategy for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth report. Public administration, industry and related services are aware of the business opportunities created by improving resource productivity.
 
A study from the European Commission estimates that increasing resource productivity 2% per year could create over two million jobs more than under a business-as-usual scenario. Another study from the European Commission states that with waste prevention, eco-design, reuse and similar measures European companies could achieve net annual saving of 600 billion euros.
 
The Eco-design approach can reduce the use of resources from the following perspectives: improving reparability and durability of products; increasing the recyclability of materials by minimizing the use of hazardous substances and increasing the energy efficiency of the production process or the use-phase of products and services.
 
The main objective of ‘The role of Eco-design in the Circular Economy’ conference is to discuss about the importance of promoting eco-design policies in order to achieve the goals of the new European policies of Circular Economy.
