Dear Members of CEN and CENELEC,
Today’s approach of ‘take-make-dispose’ is rapidly using up the world’s resources.
The circular economy concept is looking at ‘closing the loop’ of product life cycles, while at the same time pushing us to re-think and re-design our approach to the environment and economy.
CEN and CENELEC would like to invite you to register for our industry workshop on ‘Standards and the circular economy’.
Your input will shape the CEN and CENELEC standardization roadmap for circular economy for waste and secondary raw materials.
Making the transition to a circular economy is complex and brings with it a new set of challenges. Engage and learn how industry is making the shift from the linear approach to a circular thinking, with a focus on waste and secondary raw materials..
The role of standards is key in this process and during the workshop you will connect with key industry representatives to:
§ define the state of play and challenges for industry to act on managing waste and use of secondary raw materials
§ establish a clustering of potential solutions and priorities.
§ outline standards and standardization solutions missing to enable the circular economy to function
So join us for this valuable exchange and engage in this strategic exercise for growth and jobs in Europe.
I look forward to seeing you on 8 September in Brussels!
