The EU in the global circular economy transition: inspiration, incentives and market leverage

Are EU initiatives towards a circular economy transition a source of inspiration, paving the way for innovative policies, business and market practices and bolstering competitiveness? Or do they risk hindering market access or global trade? This session showcases a diversity of experiences and partnerships supported by the EU to accelerate the circular economy transition. It aims to give voice to those inspired and drawn to the circular economy path, but also to gather feedback on the challenges that need to be addressed.

Organisers: European Commission’s Directorate-General for International Partnerships, EU SWITCH-Asia programme, United Nations Economic Commission for Europe, Green Economy Coalition, Green Growth Knowledge Partnership and Partnership for Action on the Green Economy with support of the SWITCH to Green Facility
