09 Apr The Circular Economy
Half of the total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and more than 90% of the loss of biodiversity and overconsumption of water are due to the extraction and transformation of resources.
The impact of these processes on the planet is not sustainable, so the European Commission proposed a new Circular Economy Action Plan a year ago that is supported by a series of interrelated initiatives to reduce, reuse, recycle and recover the waste.
The plan introduces measures aimed at enhancing durability and reuse, combating obsolescence or promoting remanufacturing, among others.
It also increases efforts to motivate consumers or strengthen the secondary raw materials market. In the circular economy, use replaces consumption.
And within the water cycle, resources are regenerated or recovered thanks to reuse, prioritizing the use of renewable energy for processes.
