Ringmajandus

This page is also available in

Üleminek ringmajandusele on komitee tegevuskavas tähtsal kohal kui lahendus kliimakriisi vastu võitlemiseks ja meie planeedi kaitsmiseks. See on kodanikuühiskonna jaoks suurepärane võimalus, sest see võib aidata

  • suurendada Euroopa tööstuse konkurentsivõimet;
  • edendada kestlikku majanduskasvu;
  • luua uusi töökohti.

Tootmis- ja tarbimismudel „võta-ja-tekita-jäätmeid“, mis praegu endiselt majanduses domineerib, mitte üksnes ei põhjusta ressursside raiskamist, vaid kahjustab ka võitlust kliimamuutuste vastu. Erinevalt lineaarsest majandusest on ringmajandus olemuselt taastuv ja taastav, see keskendub majandusliku väärtuse loomisele ja säilitamisele, lahendades ülemaailmseid keskkonnaprobleeme, nagu kliimamuutused, elurikkuse kadumine ja reostus, tuues samal ajal majanduslikku kasu.

Hea uudis on see, et ringmajandusele üleminek on kohapeal juba toimumas. Kodanikuühiskonna sidusrühmad, sealhulgas ettevõtjad, ametiühingud, akadeemilised ringkonnad ja teadmuskogukonnad, noorteorganisatsioonid ning valitsusvälised organisatsioonid ja muud huvirühmad loovad ja rakendavad kohalikul ja piirkondlikul tasandil mitmeid ringmajanduse algatusi. Euroopa parim võimalus kiirendada üleminekut ringmajandusele on edendada ringmajanduse lahendusi ja asjaomaste sidusrühmade juhirolli.

Seda silmas pidades loodi 2017. aastal komitee ja Euroopa Komisjoni ühisalgatusena Euroopa ringmajanduse sidusrühmade platvorm, et koondada Euroopa ringmajanduse kogukonda. Sidusrühmade veetav platvorm toetab Euroopa üleminekut ringmajandusele, soodustades dialoogi, teadmiste jagamist ja parimate tavade vahetamist.

The Sustainable Products Initiative (SPI) package aims to make every aspect of the design, production, use and sale of products placed on the EU market more environmentally-friendly and circular to deliver on the sustainability and climate objectives. The proposals of the package will introduce a new era where sustainable products become the norm as well as Europe's resource independence.

In its own-initiative opinion, the EESC examines the extent to which existing EU company law currently serves as an "expedient" for the politically-desirable Green Deal and which gaps still need to be closed, in particular regarding corporate social responsibility obligations. The opinion aims at following-up on the European Commission's initiative on due diligence and broadening the debate on sustainable corporate governance interlinking the social, environmental and economic dimensions.

Europe is embarking on a transition towards climate neutrality and digital leadership. European businesses can lead the way as we enter this new age, as they has done in the past.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) are essential to Europe’s competitiveness and prosperity. Based on the new SME Strategy, the EU will support SMEs by:

  • encouraging innovation through new funding and digital innovation hubs as part of the sustainable and digital transitions;
  • cutting red tape by reducing barriers within the Single Market and opening up access to finance;
  • allowing better access to finance by setting up an SME Initial Public Offering Fund (with investments channelled through a new private-public fund) and the ESCALAR initiative (a mechanism to boost the size of venture capital funds and attract more private investment).

The EESC strongly supports the Commission's proposal – Next Generation EU – as a specific tool for a quick and effective recovery.

The EESC takes a very positive view of the Commission's two main decisions:

  1. to introduce an extraordinary financial recovery instrument as part of the multiannual financial framework
  2. to raise common debt, which will be repaid over a long period of time, and prevent the extraordinary financial burden from falling directly on the Member States in the short run.

The EESC strongly welcomes the fact that the newly proposed instrument should be closely coordinated with the European Semester process, and furthermore welcomes the Commission's proposal to introduce additional genuine own resources based on different taxes (revenues from the EU Emissions Trading System, digital taxation, large companies' revenues).

The European Union and its Member States must stand united to protect their sovereignty. The EESC firmly believes that if Europe is to maintain its leading role in the world, it needs a strong, competitive industrial base. The EESC recognises the crucial importance of shifting to a carbon-neutral economy and of reversing the current curve of biodiversity collapse. Without a green industrial strategy as a cornerstone of the Green Deal, the EU will never succeed in reaching a carbon-neutral economy within one generation. The new industrial strategy must ensure the right balance between supporting European businesses, respecting our 2050 climate neutrality objective and providing consumers with incentives to shift consumption to sustainable goods and services .
