Position paper - ENV - AmCham EU's position paper on the circular economy

27 Jul 2015

AmCham EU supports the underlying principles and objectives of a circular economy. We believe that the international dimension should be fully taken into account by the European Commission when drafting its proposal. Additionally, more efforts should be directed toward the consistent implementation of existing legislation to further promote a circular economy across Member States.

AmCham EU stresses the need to ensure the proportionate sharing of costs and responsibility along the value chain and waste management chain. We warn against applying the same solutions and methodologies across sectors since many dimensions of the circular economy remain sector-specific.
