The European Union produces more than 2.5 billion tonnes of waste every year. It is currently updating its legislation on waste management to promote a shift to a more sustainable model known as the circular economy.
In March 2020 the European Commission presented, under the European Green Deal and in line with a proposed new industrial strategy, the new circular economy action plan that includes proposals on more sustainable product design, reducing waste and empowering consumers (such as a right to repair). Specific focus is brought to resource-intensive sectors, such as electronics and ICT, plastics, textiles and construction.
The circular economy is a model of production and consumption, which involves sharing, leasing, reusing, repairing, refurbishing and recycling existing materials and products as long as possible. In this way, the life cycle of products is extended.
With this webinar we want to share the experience of the first European factory dedicated to the circular mobility economy opened by Renault as well as a good example from the practice of the circular economy in the EU automotive industry. One real example of a circular economy is the way in which batteries that are no longer used to power electric vehicles can be reused.
We also want to show that in Croatia there are companies that implement the principles of a circular economy in their work. We would like to encourage you to think and start a circular economy model in your production and that together we can protect the environment in our community.
