Aprites ekonomika

This page is also available in

Pāreja uz aprites ekonomiku ir svarīgs EESK darba kārtības jautājums, jo tā dod iespēju cīnīties pret klimata krīzi un aizsargāt mūsu planētu. Tā ir lieliska iespēja pilsoniskajai sabiedrībai, jo tā var palīdzēt

  • stiprināt Eiropas rūpniecības konkurētspēju;
  • sekmēt ilgtspējīgu ekonomikas izaugsmi;
  • radīt jaunas darbvietas.

Lineārais ražošanas un patēriņa modelis, kura pamatā ir izejvielu izmantošana, to pārstrāde un atkritumu radīšana un kas joprojām dominē mūsu ekonomikā, ne tikai veicina resursu izšķērdēšanu, bet arī kavē cīņu pret klimata pārmaiņām. Atšķirībā no lineārās ekonomikas aprites ekonomika ir reģeneratīvs un atjaunojošs modelis, kas koncentrējas uz ekonomiskās vērtības radīšanu un saglabāšanu, risina globālas ekoloģiskās problēmas, piemēram, klimata pārmaiņas, bioloģiskās daudzveidības zudumu, kā arī piesārņojumu un vienlaikus sniedz ekonomiskos ieguvumus.

Labā ziņa ir tāda, ka pāreja uz aprites modeli jau notiek. Ieinteresētās personas, kas pārstāv pilsonisko sabiedrību — tostarp uzņēmumus, arodbiedrības, akadēmiskās aprindas un zināšanu kopienas, jauniešu organizācijas —, kā arī NVO un citas interešu grupas izstrādā un īsteno daudzas aprites ekonomikas iniciatīvas vietējā un reģionālajā līmenī. Sekmējot aprites ekonomikas risinājumus un attiecīgo ieinteresēto personu līderību, Eiropa vislabāk var paātrināt pāreju uz aprites ekonomiku.

Tādējādi Eiropas aprites ekonomikas jautājumos ieinteresēto personu platforma — EESK un Eiropas Komisijas kopīga iniciatīva — ir 2017. gadā izveidota platforma, kuras mērķis ir pulcēt aprites ekonomikas kopienu Eiropā. Uz ieinteresētajām personām orientētā platforma, veicinot dialogu, daloties zināšanās un apmainoties ar paraugpraksi, atbalsta Eiropas pāreju uz aprites ekonomiku.

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 .
