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.

To address planned obsolescence, protect consumers and boost the transition to a circular economy, in 2013 the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) called for a total ban on products with built-in defects designed to prematurely end a product's life. It recommended that better information to consumers on the lifespan of products should be established. On the basis of this opinion – the first European text on this topic – the European Parliament voted in July 2017 on a resolution for a longer lifetime for products: benefits for consumers and companies.
