Lack of resources, waste reduction, circularity increase: positive examples for a very demanding challenge


* To participate and watch the contents of GECO (round tables, geco green talk) it is sufficient to register ONCE ONLY for the event.


The EU had foreseen this since 2014 with its first Circular Economy Strategy and in the end we are: we are experiencing a scarcity of raw materials and minerals, moreover expected to increase between now and 2030 for some sectors such as Fashion, Automotive. Electronics, Telecommunications, Plastics. The EU itself is reviewing its sectoral policies to promote a longer life cycle of goods and packaging, lower toxicity combined with repairability and recyclability and forms of financial incentives to support the transition of companies in this direction: the PNRR - Next Generation EU is a unique opportunity for Europe thanks to the financial resources it makes available for the ecological transition of businesses and cities. To reduce climate-altering emissions, it is also useful to focus on good practices and update national policies to reduce the use of natural resources, adopt aware and competitive techniques of Circular Design, reduce waste and waste, extend the life cycle of goods and promote repair, reuse and regeneration as secondary raw materials. The Round Table intends to share some positive examples and the paths to implement them.
