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.

    Microplastics are persistent, very mobile, and hard to remove from nature. Microplastics are widespread in the world and in the human body, and a cause of growing concerns. Plastic pellets are found in water and soil, including agricultural lands, and harm ecosystems and biodiversity. Plastic pellets are the one of the largest sources of unintentional microplastic pollution.

    For the first time, the European Commission proposes measures to prevent microplastic pollution from the unintentional release of plastic pellets.

    One of the main conclusions of the 8th Cohesion Report is that although cohesion and convergence among regions in the European Union has improved, there are still remaining gaps especially in less developed regions related with their territorial characteristics. EU islands, mountain areas and sparsely populated areas still face many challenges on their growth and income and disparities exist.

    In these regions, there are still a lot of gaps in terms of employment and investment, social exclusion is evident and gender disparities have not diminished.

    Since 2016, as requested by the Council, every second year the Commission publishes a report on the implementation of the existing macro-regional strategies (MRS). This is the fourth report, covering the period from mid-2020 to mid-2022. It assesses the state of play and progress on implementing the MRS and examines ways forward especially in the context of the war in Ukraine and the COVID-19 crisis.

    The movement of skilled workers out of regions already suffering from lower economic development may further undermine the growth and development potential of these regions. Such a "brain drain" from vulnerable EU regions therefore may contribute to widening territorial disparities, going against the objective of territorial cohesion set out in Article 174 TFEU. Given the cross-border impact of such developments the Commission considers that action at EU level is necessary.
