Кръгова икономика

This page is also available in

Преходът към кръгова икономика е на челно място в дневния ред на ЕИСК като решение за борбата с изменението на климата и опазването на нашата планета. Това е голяма възможност за гражданското общество, тъй като може да спомогне за:

  • повишаване на конкурентоспособността на европейската промишленост;
  • насърчаване на устойчив икономически растеж;
  • създаване на нови работни места.

Линейният модел на производство и потребление „добивам-произвеждам-изхвърлям“, който понастоящем все още доминира в нашата икономика, води не само до разхищаване на ресурси, но и подкопава борбата с изменението на климата. За разлика от него кръговата икономика представлява модел за регенерация и възстановяване, съсредоточен върху създаването и запазването на икономическата стойност, за борба с глобалните предизвикателства за околната среда като изменението на климата, загубата на биологично разнообразие и замърсяването, като същевременно носи икономически ползи.

Добрата новина е, че преходът към кръгова икономика вече се осъществява по места. Заинтересованите страни от гражданското общество в т.ч. предприятията, синдикатите, академичните среди, и общностите на знанието, младежките организации, както и НПО и други групи по интереси разработват и прилагат редица кръгови инициативи на местно и регионално равнище. Катализирането на кръговите решения и поемането на водеща роля от съответните заинтересовани страни е най-добрата възможност Европа да ускори прехода към кръгова икономика.

Европейската платформа на заинтересованите страни в областта на кръговата икономика, съвместна инициатива на ЕИСК и Европейската комисия, беше създадена през 2017 г., за да обедини свързаната с кръговата икономика общност в Европа. Водена от заинтересованите страни, платформата подкрепя прехода на Европа към кръгова икономика, като насърчава диалога, споделянето на знания и обмена на най-добри практики.

The transition to the Circular Economy will impact businesses, workers and consumers in different ways/varying degrees across the economy. The Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) sector is crucial for this transition. In 2016, the consumer electronics sector alone produced 44.7 million tonnes of e-waste, with mobile phones accounting for 435 thousand tonnes, and a mere 20% being recycled. This study presents the opportunities and challenges arising from implementing a circular approach, using the mobile phone sector as an example.
