The transition to a Circular Economy offers a unique opportunity to generate innovative, sustainable, resource-efficient and competitive advantages for European businesses and consumers. Circular Economy will help Europe reach its energy and climate targets, which have been agreed by the Member States and remain at the forefront of the green economy.

This objective can be best reached by closing resource loops and maintaining the value and quality of materials all along the cycle.

CEN and CENELEC Members, together with their industry partners, kindly invite you to a one-day stakeholder workshop to address the challenges linked to the circularity of material-use at every phase of the value chain, and to both discuss and identify specific standardization gaps for metal, wood, plastic and concrete circularity.
